“We maintain constant contact with Indian partners. Now we are agreeing to deploy GLONASS adjusting stations in India. Besides, they had requests connected with the possibility of participation in our moon programs,” Komarov said.

With China, he said, the issue of exchanging data from remote Earth sensing satellites to address emergency situations is being discussed.
