"It will eventually become space and air force and new investments required for it will be decided," he told Xinhua, adding that France has approved four billion dollars of military spending to protect space in 2019-25. Macron said cyberspace and areas outside the atmosphere have become new areas of confrontation, after which the need to create new space military doctrine has arisen, which will ensure France's defense in space.

France took this step after the U.S. announced the establishment of a new space force by 2020 as the sixth branch of its military force.
