According to the Chinese institution, high-level meetings were held to exchange important data in order to guarantee the safety of both missions.

Some analysts see in this move the possibility that the two powers may develop cooperation projects in space matters and even welcome US requests to use the Chinese spherical radio telescope, known as the Eye of the Sky, which is the largest in the world, with an aperture of 500 meters.

However, others recall that communications are restricted by a US amendment signed more than a decade ago.
