#AceNewsReport – Opinion: RUSSIA:July.01: The heads of Russia’s Federal Space Agency and China’s Satellite Navigation Office signed a joint statement on May 8 on the joint operation of Russia’s GLONASS and China’s BeiDou systems.

MOSCOW (Sputnik) – Russian and Chinese global navigation satellite systems are well suited to meeting #BRICS members’ civilian needs, chief analyst for GLONASS Union, Andrei Ionin, told Sputnik on Wednesday.

“All the studies show that the two systems [can] solve all civilian objectives. So GLONASS and BeiDou together can cater for all such tasks within BRICS,” Ionin told Sputnik.

He pointed to the key importance of developing GLONASS within the BRICS framework. The GLONASS Union analyst said Russia’s navigation system, with the exception of that of China and the United States, lacks global undertakings.
