Roscosmos head says ready to receive NASA Chief in Russia after canceled invitation to US

MOSCOW, Jan 10 : Dmitry Rogozin, the head of Russian space agency Roscosmos, said he was ready to receive NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine and the Russian corporations’ potential US customers in Russia in the wake of the cancellation of his invitation to visit the United States.
Earlier in January, Bridenstine said he had canceled Rogozin’s invitation because he wanted to accommodate the interests of US senators, who suggested that it was not a good idea. Roscosmos, in its turn, said it had not received any official confirmation of the cancellation of the invitation from NASA, noting it would refrain from retaliatory moves until it receives the official explanations on the issue.
“I am ready to receive the agency’s head, Jim Bridenstine, in Russia. We will now have to discuss the way we will live further. We will also invite our potential commercial customers from the United States [to visit Russia] because we will not have an opportunity to meet with them in Washington. We will make a detailed presentation of our plans for them and will offer interesting cooperation conditions to them. We now have something to offer to our partners,” Rogozin said in an interview with the Russian RBC news outlet. (AGENCIES)
