Bill Gerstenmaier, the Associate Administrator for Human Exploration and Operations for NASA, commended this decision of the Russian government.
Takashi Hamazaki of Japan Aerospace Exploration Agency (JAXA) said his country’s government had not yet taken a final decision about extension of its participation in the ISS project. He said the issue was still under scrutiny, but, he added, JAXA wanted to prolong its participation till 2024.
