Russia's Roscosmos state space corporation is ready to continue the delivery of mixed crews to the International Space Station (ISS) after 2018 using Russian manned spacecraft, Roscosmos head Igor Komarov told reporters on Sunday.
Last month, William Gerstenmaier, NASA associate administrator for human exploration and operations, said that the organization had no plans to renew its contract with Roscosmos for the delivery of astronauts to ISS after 2018.
"We are ready to continue delivering mixed crews after 2018," Komarov said adding that the Russian side hoped to continue cooperation in the field with the foreign partners both from the United States and Europe.
He expressed confidence that all future ISS crews would consist of representatives of different states.
