China sees 'inclusive' outer space efforts

VIENNA, June 6 (UPI) -- China favors peaceful use of outer space and will strive for inclusive development of it with other nations, a senior Chinese diplomat says.

The inclusive development of outer space is based on three aspects, said Cheng Jingye, China's permanent representative to the United Nations. They are tolerance for space environment, tolerance for all countries and tolerance for all mankind, he said.

The inclusive development of outer space is needed to deal with larger challenges worldwide and would bring benefits to all countries and all mankind, particularly for those countries not yet possessing the capability explore space, he said.

Cheng made the remarks at the 55th session of the Committee on the Peaceful Uses of Outer Space Wednesday at the United Nations Office in Vienna, China's state-run Xinhua News Agency reported.

All parties should pay great attention to international cooperation and exchanges in the field to promote common development and to achieve mutual benefits and win-win results, he said.
