WASHINGTON (AP)–The U.S. criticized China Thursday for conducting an anti-satellite weapons test in which an old Chinese weather satellite was destroyed by a ballistic missile.

“The United States believes China’s development and testing of such weapons is inconsistent with the spirit of cooperation that both countries aspire to in the civil space area,” National Security Council spokesman Gordon Johndroe said. “We and other countries have expressed our concern to the Chinese.”

U.S. intelligence agencies believe China conducted the test on Jan. 11.
