Dmitry Rogozin is scheduled to visit the US in early 2019 as Director General of the Roscosmos State Space Corporation and Presidential Envoy for International Space Cooperation, the Roscosmos press service told TASS on Friday.
"Dmitry Rogozin will visit the United States to hold talks as Roscosmos Director General and Russian Presidential Envoy for International Space Cooperation," the press service said.
According to Roscosmos, Russia and the US continue consultations on the agenda of Rogozin’s visit.
The press service noted that sanctions would not hinder Rogozin’s activities as presidential envoy because "for the most part, talks take place either in Russia or in countries that sanctions do not cover."
Rogozin will also supervise all key international projects, Roscosmos added. "They include the International Space Station project, the Russian-EU ExoMars mission and the Russian-Kazakh Baiterek complex," the corporation said.
Russian President Vladimir Putin has recently signed a decree appointing Rogozin as Special Presidential Representative for International Space Cooperation.
