    VORONEZH, July 19 (RIA Novosti) - The Russian Federal Space Agency (Roskosmos) is willing to cooperate with foreign countries, including the United States, in space exploration, the head of the agency said Tuesday.

    "In recent years there has been a rapid increase in the number of countries building space vehicles and exploring space," Roskosmos head Anatoly Perminov said. "Countries such as China, India, Japan and the USA are participating in the Moon Program. Russia would be willing to resume work in this sphere if our partners, particularly the USA, are interested in cooperation."

    He said that there were good opportunities for cooperation between the European Space Agency (ESA) within the framework of the Ural program (production of rocket carriers for exploration of space for peaceful purposes).
