WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. and Chinese officials will meet in the United States this fall for bilateral talks about civil space, a senior U.S. official said on Wednesday, amid growing concerns about China's behaviour in the rapidly expanding commercial space market.

The meeting, which will likely happen in Washington, is not pegged to progress in this week's meeting of U.S. President Donald Trump and Chinese President Xi Jinping on the sidelines of a G20 meeting in Osaka, Japan, the official said.
