Space chief seeks more US cooperation
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.
