“We have discussed plans of Russian-Chinese experiments with the chief of the similar institute just a week ago. We have a long list of 15-20 issues on each side. We will merge them at a meeting in January,” Zeleny said.
He noted that major potential of cooperation with China have not been tapped yet. Meanwhile, the Russian academician noted that China keeps mistrusting Russian partners over the 2011 aborted launch of the Russian Mars probe Phobos-Grunt with a Chinese micro-satellite installed on it.
“Chinese partners find our industry blamed for this. They had some indisposition to us, because not everything was done correctly towards them,” Zeleny added.
