NOVOSIBIRSK, June 6. /ITAR-TASS/. Standards of navigation systems must be discussed with participation of Russia and China, but not imposed unilaterally by the United States, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin told a Technoprom 2014 forum meeting.
Navigation services must be open for all systems, and their standards must be discussed with participation of the Russian Federation and Chinese colleagues, he stressed.
Aside from the American GPS and Russia's GLONASS, the European navigation system Galileo and China's Beidou were being developed actively, he noted.
The vice-premier believes cooperation of the Russian and Chinese navigation systems may give rise to a serious competitor for the American GPS.
Russia tries to develop international cooperation in the sphere of navigation for the systems to be mutually complementary and compatibile, to promote global use of the GLONASS system and support competitiveness, he noted.
At the Russian-Chinese summit in Shanghai, the heads of the states had talks on cooperation in the navigation and space sphere, Rogozin recalled. "We see great prospects in cooperation of Russia's GLONASS and China's navigation system," he said.
Rogozin noted the Russian system was more oriented at northern regions with the Arctic, while the Chinese system was more southern. "Thus, their mutual complementarity may lead to creation of the biggest and most powerful competitor for any navigation systems," he noted.
Given the closer factual and strategic cooperation, for which "the Western friends should be thanked", the American colleagues will receive from Russian-Chinese cooperation a competitor that will be able not only to compete. "But in essence, our task is, in the interests of civilian users, to achieve superiority," Rogozin said.
