Russia, China discuss cooperation in Moon, Mars exploration — Deputy PM

YEKATERINBURG, July 13. Russia and China have discussed the possibilities of cooperation in exploring the outer space, including the Moon and Mars, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said on Wednesday.

The vice-premier made this statement during a talk with the heads of Russian regions and Chinese provinces and the managers of companies from both countries.

“Yesterday, we (Rogozin and Vice-Premier of China’s State Council Wang Yang) worked for three and a half hours, discussing cooperation in the nuclear sphere and cooperation in the issues of interaction between our space agencies where there are such large projects as the deliveries of rocket engines, and cooperation in navigation systems,” Rogozin said.

“We’re developing an understanding for the rocket and space industry for possible interaction in such profound and technologically complex projects as the future exploration of the Moon, Mars and piloted cosmonautics,” the Russian vice-premier said.

In Rogozin’s opinion, both countries have the potential to implement such impressive projects as trust exists both at the political level and at the level of specialists solving these issues.
