Mike Pence: US Open to Collaborating With ‘Like-Minded’ Nations on Space Exploration

Vice President Mike Pence

Vice President Mike Pence has said that the U.S. is willing to cooperate with “like-minded freedom-loving nations” in space exploration efforts, Space News reported Monday.

Pence told attendees at the opening of the 70th International Astronautical Congress in Washington, D.C., that President Trump’s leadership has enabled the country to be at the forefront of space programs like NASA’s Artemis mission to the moon.

He added that the U.S. and its allies must work to ensure a regulatory environment in space spanning matters like freedom, private property and rule of law.

“We will use all legal and diplomatic means to create a stable and orderly space environment that drives opportunity, creates prosperity and ensures our security on Earth,” he said.
