Outer Space & U.S.-China Diplomacy


Space plays a growing role in U.S.-China security talks: official


COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado | Thu Apr 11, 2013 9:26pm EDT
 
(Reuters) - Space is playing an increasing role in security talks between the United States and China, although no formal dialogue dedicated to space security has begun, a senior U.S. State Department official said on Thursday.

"Over the past year or so, space has been included in an increasing way and we hope to continue those discussions on space security," Frank Rose, deputy assistant secretary of state for space and defense policy, told Reuters after a speech at a space industry conference in Colorado Springs.

The United States remains concerned about China's development of anti-satellite capabilities after it shot a missile at one of its own defunct satellite on orbit in 2007, creating an enormous amount of debris in space, Rose said.
