MOSCOW, February 2 (Itar-Tass) – Media rumors about some sort of disagreement between Russia and Kazakhstan over the Baikonur space sight are exaggerated, CSTO Secretary-General Nikolai Bordyuzha said in the wake of Kazakhstan’s statement there will be fewer Proton rocket launches from Baikonur in 2013 than before.
“I know how the leaders of Kazakhstan and Russia feel about cooperation. Kazakhstan is very much interested in space exploration. So I believe that the rumors are somewhat exaggerated,” Bordyuzha said.
In any case, everything that concerns the operation of Baikonur is a subject matter of bilateral agreements, Bordyuzha added. In his opinion, Kazakhstan’s statement by no means hindered the operation of the space site.
