    The Russian delegation is in China's Chongqing for talks with the leadership of China's State Council.

    "The negotiations "in a narrow circle" with Wang Yang, the member of the Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China (CPC): cooperation in space, aviation, and nuclear industry," Rogozin said on his Twitter account.

    As a part of the talks, the Russian delegation visited an automobile plant in Chongqing.

    In September, Rogozin met with Chinese Vice Premier Wang Yang in Russia's southwestern city of Volgograd to hold intergovernmental negotiations. Representatives of Russia and China pointed out during a meeting the narrowing of the gap between positions of both countries in the cooperation in space, aviation, and nuclear industries.

    In recent years, the level of cooperation between Russia and China has drastically increased, particularly in the spheres of energy, economy, and defense. The two governments are reportedly going to sign an agreement on joint space exploration covering lunar to deep space exploration, special materials development, Earth remote sensing, space debris research and satellite systems.
