BEIJING - The arrangements for the Shenzhou X mission will be decided after a full review of the Shenzhou IX mission and status of orbiting Tiangong-1 lab module, said a spokeswoman for China's manned space program here on Sunday.

The Shenzhou X mission will also include a manned rendezvous and docking with Tiangong-1, said spokeswoman Wu Ping at a press conference on the successful manual docking between Shenzhou IX and Tiangong-1 on Sunday.

China completed its first space docking, which is an automated one, last year between the Shenzhou VIII and Tiangong-1.
