August 28, 2019 at 18:16 GMT +00:00 · Published

General Director of the European Space Agency (ESA) Johann-Dietrich Woerner said that the agency will continue cooperation with Roscosmos, speaking at the MASK 2019 international air show in Zhukovsky on Wednesday.

"As the Americans will have in the future their own capability again, most probably they will offer us seats in the new American launchers, which does not mean that automatically we will not fly with Soyuz," said the director.

"We might have some discussions with the Russian side for a similar agreement as we have with the Americans," the ESA director added.

Woerner stated ESA and Roscosmos have a lot of joint projects together, including the ExoMars mission.

He added that Russian cosmonauts will continue cooperation with the Europeans as "they are working together" at the International Space Station which means that "they should be trained also together."
