Today looks like a step forward for cooperation in space; for the first time Chinese experiments may be going up to the ISS. Here are some different, articles if you don't trust a Chinese government funded media website to be objective.
Whether or not a Republican-led US Congress is going to double down on restrictions, cutting out private-sector cooperation alongside NASA's existing ban, remains to be seen.

NASA, chief among five major cooperating space agencies in the ISS project, has been prohibited entering into bilateral research and cooperation with China or Chinese entities by law. However this commercial contract is so far clear to put Chinese research on the ISS, though it may face further scrutiny in Congress. The congressional ban was put in place in 2011 due in large part to the efforts of former Representative Frank Wolf, who was chairperson of the Subcommittee on Commerce, Justice, Science, and Related Agencies, and a critic of China’s human rights record and religious freedom. The inclusion of the so-called ‘Wolf Clause’ followed long-held and strongly-voiced concerns of cyber-attacks and spying by China.
