MOSCOW, July 8 /TASS/. Russian Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin said on Friday that Russia and Kazakhstan had reached understanding on ways of implementing the Baiterek project for the development of a new space rocket complex.
"We have reached understanding on how to implement the Baiterek joint project, which is vitally important for both countries," Rogozin told an extended meeting of the Russian-Kazakhstani inter-governmental commission on Friday.
"The Russian side had prepared and handed over to the Kazakhstani side several possible scenarios for a future layout and places for deployment of components as well as the cost parameters of the Baiterek space rocket complex.
According to Rogozin, the two countries’ experts agreed that the final decision would be passed in September this year.
The Russian vice-premier added that the sides were planning to sign a joint action plan for implementing the Baiterek project at the IV session of the Russian-Kazakhstani inter-governmental commission. He also added that the Russian side had met all the commitments linked to training experts for the Baiterek joint venture who will later prepare components for the launch of Proton-M rockets as part of joint crews.
According to the vice-premier, Kazakhastani experts will soon be able to help launching this type of carrier rockets. "They are undergoing training and will soon be able to be directly involved in the work of the ground infrastructure of the Proton-M space rocket complex," Rogozin said.
"We do not rule out that in case of positive experience - we have no doubt that it’s going to be positive - Kazakhstani experts will join joint crews at other rocket launch complexes at Baikonur.
