    Russian-Chinese cooperation in space technologies is of exclusively peaceful nature, Russian Ambassador to China Andrei Denisov said Tuesday.

    BEIJING (Sputnik) — Denisov added that intellectual property rights protection was the focus area of cooperation in space technologies for Russia.

    "I can't but underline that this cooperation is of exclusively peaceful, civil nature, and in the long run it is profitable for the whole mankind rather than solely for the participating countries, as any space research and development program is," Denisov told journalists.

    On Monday, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin said that Moscow and Beijing would sign a deal on the protection of intellectual property in the field of rocket technologies during Russian President Vladimir Putin's visit to China scheduled for June 25.
