It is believed that China will be able to train foreign astronauts with its own space technology and send them to space by Shenzhou spacecraft someday, the spokeswoman of China's manned space program said Sunday. Wu Ping told a press conference in Beijing that she believed China's aerospace technology will become more and more mature along with the development of its manned space technology.
China has completed limited number of space missions and will continue to conduct numerous manned space technological tests, she said.
According to the plan of China's manned space program, the country is still at the stage of making breakthroughs in fundamental manned space technologies, Wu said.

She said that China would like to cooperate and make exchanges with different nations around the world on the principles of mutual respect, equality and mutual benefits to push forward the further development of manned space undertakings.
