NEW DELHI, February 26. /ITAR-TASS/. Russia and India have agreed to hold consultations on space cooperation and joint projects in this field, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Wednesday, February 26.
“We also discussed GLONASS and think there is an enormous potential for cooperation in this area and the joint use of space services in general,” Rogozin, who is co-chair of the Russian-Indian inter-governmental commission on trade, economic, scientific, technical and cultural cooperation, said.
He noted that this year India would be celebrating the 30th anniversary of its first astronaut Rakesh Sharma’s space flight accomplished in 1984. “We have agreed to hold a series of consultations between our space agencies to engage our Indian partners in the plans and projects to be undertaken by the United Rocket and Space Corporation,” Rogozin said.
He met with Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, Foreign Minister Salman Khurshid and Commerce and Industry Minister Anand Sharma.
