The Biden administration on Wednesday laid out a new strategy for responsible civil, commercial and national security-related use of space amid growing commercial interests and concerns about Chinese and Russian competition, APA reports quoting Reuters.

U.S. Vice President Kamala Harris, set to convene the inaugural meeting of the National Space Council, planned to ask members of the government body "to accelerate, expand, and develop rules and norms for responsible behavior in space," the White House said.

"We are on the cusp of historic changes in access to and use of space – changes that have the potential to bring the benefits of space to more people and communities than ever before," the administration said in a report outlining its space priorities.
