MOSCOW, April 01. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian government will consider a bill on co-operation with Nicaragua in the sphere of the exploration and use of outer space for peaceful purposes. The document has been approved by the government’s legislative commission, the official website of the cabinet reports.
The bill, drafted by the Russian Foreign Ministry and Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) proposes to ratify the corresponding Russian-Nicaraguan intergovernmental agreement that, in particular, provides for the installation in Nicaragua of the stations of the GNSS (Global navigation satellite systems) augmentation system and monitoring of the Russian GLONASS system.
“It is a framework agreement that determines the necessary principles, norms and conditions for the development of bilateral relations in the sphere of space exploration, including matters related to the distribution and protection of intellectual property rights, responsibility, export control, property and technology protection, customs clearing of products and a number of others,” it is said on the official governmental website.
It says that the implementation of the agreement would not require additional costs of the federal budget. The expenses linked with the creation and development of protected zones for the work with safeguarded articles and technology will be assumed by the organisations, co-operating on the specific programmes and projects.
