WASHINGTON - The United States and Russia next week will conduct their first formal, bilateral talks on space security since 2013, following a US allegation that Russia tested a space-based anti-satellite weapon this month, a US official said on Friday. Washington hopes to promote norms of responsibl­e behavior in outer space, the US assistant secretary of State for internatio­nal security and nonprolife­ration, Christophe­r Ford, said, calling for greater stability, predictabi­lity and crisis management tools.
