"First and foremost we are talking about deliveries of RD-180 engines [to China]. This is a very successful engine of ours that we deliver even to the United States," Rogozin said at a preparatory meeting ahead of Putin's visit.
"Secondly, the Russian side is interested in acquiring an electronic component base — radio microelectronics for space purposes, meaning highly durable microelectronics. Agreements on both will be reached after we sign a deal on the protection of intellectual property during President Vladimir Putin's upcoming visit to China. This will open the gates to these two major contracts," he added.
