Representatives from US and Chinese government agencies held the second US-China Civil Space Dialogue to advance collaboration on space activities, the US Department of State said in a press release.
The State Department and China National Space Administration co-hosted the October 20 meeting, which was also attended by officials from the Defense Department, NASA and other US government agencies, according to the release.
"This ongoing Civil Space Dialogue enhances cooperation between the two countries, promotes responsible behavior in space, and encourages greater transparency and openness on a variety of space-related issues," the release stated on Monday.
US and Chinese officials exchanged information on science, weather, spaceflight safety and the long-term sustainability of outer space activities.
The next meeting was scheduled to be held in China in 2017.
