U.S., Russia to hold first space security talks since 2013

WASHINGTON, July 24 (Reuters) - The United States and Russian will next week conduct their first formal, bilateral talks on space security since 2013, following a U.S. allegation that Russia tested a space-based anti-satellite weapon this month, a U.S. official said on Friday.

U.S. Assistant Secretary of State for International Security and Nonproliferation Christopher Ford told reporters in a conference call that one possible topic for the talks, which will take place in Vienna, may be to make clear “that outer space is not a lawless and ungoverned territory.” (Reporting By Arshad Mohammed and Daphne Psaledakis, Editing by Franklin Paul)
