Russia promotes Glonass to BRICS as competitive boost
by Staff Writers
Moscow (Voice of Russia) May 28, 2014

The market of BRICS countries boasts 3 billion consumers.

The deployment of Glonass global navigation system stations in BRICS member countries will boost the network competitiveness, Russian Foreign Ministry Ambassador at Large, executive secretary of the interdepartmental commission for Russian membership in the G20 and the BRICS Group Vadim Lukov said.

"A project of the sort implemented in collaboration with BRICS countries will strengthen the global nature of our network and add to its competitiveness on the retail market.

"The market of BRICS countries boasts 3 billion consumers, and many of them consume satellite services," Lukov told reporters on Tuesday on the sidelines of the 4th international conference "BRICS: Cooperation for Development", Interfax reports.

Roscosmos proposed the deployment of high-precision satellite navigation elements in BRICS countries to the Russian government, Lukin said.

He also called lawful the Russian demands that Glonass stations be deployed in the United States.

Negotiations about the deployment of Glonass stations in the United States were suggested by Russian Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Rogozin.

"The government has ordered that an interdepartmental delegation be set up, a group of the Academy of Sciences and Roscosmos.

They offered the United States to hold negotiations and make a decision on the deployment of Glonass stations on the US territory," he said.

Rogozin said the US GPS stations in Russia might be halted and dismantled.

If the US partners do not respond by May 31, the operation of GPS stations will be suspended for three months. A decision to dismantle these stations will be made on August 31 unless the negotiations yield a compromise within that period, Rogozin said.
