 MOSCOW. March 5 (Interfax) - Roscosmos CEO Dmitry Rogozin and Egyptian Ambassador to Russia Ihab Nasr have discussed cooperation in the space exploration business, Roscosmos said.


"During a business conversation, the Russian and Egyptian sides discussed the current state and prospects of mutually beneficial Russian-Egyptian cooperation in the civilian space industry.

The parties attached importance and priority to "preparing an intergovernmental framework agreement on space between Russia and Egypt, and Egyptian specialists are studying its blueprint now," it said.



 "The Egyptian side has also reaffirmed the plans voiced earlier on its involvement in Russian research programs," Roscosmos said.
