MOSCOW, January 22. /ITAR-TASS/. The Russian Federal Space Agency (Roscosmos) has denied talks with its NASA colleagues on a possible flight of an Israeli astronaut to the International Space Station, the Roscomos press service told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
"At present, Roscosmos does not have any agreements on a flight by an Israeli astronaut; no talks are being conducted to this effect," the press service said.
Earlier, a number of mass media agencies said that the Israeli astronaut might fly to the ISS on board the Russian spaceship Soyuz instead one of the two U.S. astronauts.
One seat on board the Soyuz spaceship is traditionally reserved for a Russian cosmonaut; another seat is intended for an astronaut from NASA. The third seat is traditionally occupied either by a second cosmonaut from Russia or a European or Japanese astronaut.
