    BEIJING (Sputnik) Moscow and Beijing intend to secure a bilateral agreement on the protection of technology in the coming months, Russia's Federal Space Agency Roscosmos head Igor Komarov said Sunday.

    "In the coming months we are preparing an agreement on the protection of technologies… We hope [to sign it] in the summer.
