Biden's management is committed to expanding International Space Station operations by 2030, NASA Secretary Bill Nelson said Friday.

Nelson said Biden's management was committed to working with international partners, including Russia, to further research in the rotating laboratory throughout the decade. Russia and the US have had a close partnership between the International Space Station for more than two decades.

U.S. officials said in November that Russia's anti-satellite missile test launched a field of debris on Earth's low-lying path that put the station at risk and would pose a threat to space missions for years.

The channel will be operational until 2030 if approved by international partners and funded by Congress. Currently, Congress has approved funding until 2024.

Tensions between Russia and the U.S. are not limited to space-related issues. Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin on Thursday exchanged warnings about Ukraine but expressed hope that diplomatic talks in January could ease tensions.
