President Trump has issued an executive order to advance international support for the private and public recovery and use of minerals, water and other resources in space.

The executive order signed Monday directs the secretary of the State Department to oversee and initiate all appropriate actions to promote international support for the use and recovery of space resources.

The secretary should be in charge of negotiating multilateral arrangements and joint statements with foreign states with regard to sustainable and safe operations in support of the use and recovery of space resources.

The policy also states the country’s position on the Moon Agreement and requires the secretary of State to submit a report to the president within 180 days about measures and other efforts to encourage foreign support for the recovery and use of resources in space.
