WASHINGTON, February 26. /TASS/. US plans to cooperate with Russia and other countries on the International Space Station (ISS) program at least for the next 10 years, NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) spokesman Allard Beutel told TASS on Wednesday.
Commenting on Russia’s space agency Roscosmos’ decision to approve using the station until 2024, Beutel said that earlier President Barack Obama’s Administration also announced its plans to jointly use the ISS until 2024.
Beutel stressed that NASA welcomes cooperation with foreign partners on ISS. The spokesman refused to comment on Roscosmos’ plans to create Russian orbital system on the basis of modules that can be undocked from the ISS. Moscow plans to suspend international use of the station in 10 years and use parts of the ISS Russian segment to construct its own orbital system.
Last year, US suspended cooperation with Russia in the space sphere because of the situation around Ukraine. The only exception was the ISS project, which American specialists consider to be a unique platform for scientific experiments and observations.
