White House

US-Russian space cooperation

The “U.S.-Russia Joint Fact Sheet: Bratislava Initiatives” released by the White House today after the meeting between President Bush and President Putin includes a single sentence about space cooperation:

In the area of space cooperation, the Presidents called for enhanced cooperation, focusing on the International Space Station and other projects, including those related to possible lunar exploration.

The White House didn’t release any additional details about such cooperation, although one might imagine that, if anything, they discussed future US access to the ISS using Soyuz spacecraft.
