CEO of Russia’s state space corporation Roscosmos, Dmitry Rogozin, said on Russia’s TV Channel One: "China is a serious partner. I don’t rule out that as soon as we agree the outlines of our lunar program with the Americans, it is our manned lunar program, the formation of a research station on Moon’s surface is likely to be carried out with our Chinese partners. They can be equal partners already in the coming years."
