France and China committed to co-operating on space exploration -French CNES body

PARIS, March 9 (Reuters) - France and China reaffirmed on Tuesday their commitment to working together in the field of space exploration, said France’s CNES space studies organisation.

A European Union official said in January that the EU would pursue a more aggressive European space strategy to prevent being muscled out by U.S. and Chinese launcher technology, setting up an European alliance with industry this year.

French President Emmanuel Macron had also created in 2019 a space command unit within the country's air force. (here)
