China Daily (Canada) - - NEWS CAPSULE -

The new chief of the China’s space in­dus­try, Xu Dazhe, is seek­ing more co­op­er­a­tion from Wash­ing­ton less than a month af­ter his coun­try’s first suc­cess­ful soft land­ing on the moon.

Xu said China’s space pol­icy has al­ways been very open. “We are will­ing to co­op­er­ate with all the coun­tries in the world, in­clud­ing the United States as well as de­vel­op­ing coun­tries,” he said last Thurs­day on the side­lines of the In­ter­na­tional Space Ex­plo­ration Fo­rum at the US State Depart­ment. The US in­vited to at­tend the fo­rum, and he said the in­vi­ta­tion and his par­tic­i­pa­tion have sent a pos­i­tive sign.

Co­op­er­a­tion be­tween China and the Na­tional Aero­nau­tics & Space Ad­min­is­tra­tion (NASA) has been largely banned un­der a China ex­clu­sion pol­icy passed by the US Congress in 2011. (Photo 1)
