MOSCOW, October 4. /TASS/. Russia’s Roscosmos space agency does not dramatise the situation with Canadian visa denials for its delegates to attend the International Astronautical Congress that took place in Toronto in late September but regards as a mistake the Canadian government’s actions, Roscosmos head Oleg Ostapenko said on Saturday.
“I do not make a big thing out of the situation,” Ostapenko said. “First, we are absolutely self-dependent and are able to find a solution to any problem.”
Russia “is open and looks to co-operating in all space-related spheres,” he said.
“Prospective goals can and must be achieved only within the close global community,” Ostapenko said. “And if someone does not comprehend it or puts forward some ambitious tasks, he - to put it mildly - is grossly mistaken.”
“We continue the work, are open for co-operation and are certain that we will solve all the tasks,” the Roscosmos head said.
