Medvedev Oversees Agreements on Space and Oil Cooperation During Vietnam Trip

Agreements on oil and space signed between Russia and Vietnam during President Dmitry Medvedev's ongoing visit to Hanoi mean closer cooperation between the two counties.

Vladimir Popovkin, head of the Federal Space Agency, and Nguyen Tan Dung, science and technology minister of Vietnam, signed an intergovernmental agreement on space cooperation on Tuesday in the areas of research and use of outer space for peaceful purposes, Russia's space agency said in a statement. 

"This will give an impulse to cooperate in the areas of remote sensing, satellite navigations and communications, space medical science and biology," the statement said.
