Moscow will consider a request for a Guatemalan cosmonaut to be trained in Russia, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said Thursday.

"We have received a request to consider whether a Guatemalan cosmonaut could be sent to a training center in Russia. Of course, we will consider this request," Lavrov said at a joint press conference with his Guatemalan counterpart Carlos Morales.

The request has been addressed to the Russian Federal Space Agency, which will consider it alongside other countries participating in the International Space Station project, Lavrov added.

Morales added that he hopes that the first Guatemalan cosmonaut will go into space thanks to the Russian Cosmonaut Training Center.

The Gagarin Research and Test Cosmonaut Training Center, located in Star City in Moscow region, provides cosmonaut training as well as post-flight rehabilitation programs for cosmonauts.
