Russia’s Deputy Prime Minister and Defence Minister Sergey Ivanov today said that India is the only country with which Russia wants to develop all aspects of the global satellite navigation system GLONASS.
“At present India is the only country with which we want to develop all aspects of GLONASS. This demonstrates the general nature of our relations and our willingness to develop cooperation with India in such sensitive areas,” he said in Bangalore on Tuesday when visiting a satellite production centre.
“The Ministry of Defence has now removed all limitations on the precision of receiving information from GLONASS,” he added.
Ivanov said that the management of Roskosmos would sign for the Russian side, although the GLONASS system was and will remain a duel-use system.
He added that Moscow is prepared to cooperate with India in developing GLONASS, saying that it already counts military-technical cooperation.
