Space Force: China cautions against outer space arms race

Responding to President Trump’s executive order for the establishment of a “Space Force” within the US military, China warned that such a decision could result in an space arms race. US worries over Chinese and Russian development of powerful space technology and weaponry, mostly against satellites and GPS systems, have done much to drive US government efforts in the sector. US emphasis on achieving “dominance” rather than “presence” has, in turn, escalated Russian and Chinese rhetoric and concerns.
