U.S. expert criticizes Congress's ban on U.S.-China space cooperation
WASHINGTON, June 11 (Xinhua) -- The U.S. Congress should adopt a "more constructive set of policies" that encourages rather than bans U.S.-Chinese cooperation and collaboration in space, a U.S. expert said Tuesday, just as China launched its fifth crewed space mission.
In an interview with Xinhua, Gregory Kulacki, senior analyst and China project manager for the Global Security Program at the Union of Concerned Scientists, criticized the Congress for its stance on barring U.S. space agency NASA from any partnership or collaboration with China.
