What Should Armenia Do if Cosmonauts Land in Our Country?

Aravot, Armenia

Minister of Transport, Communication, and Information Technologies Vahan Martirosyan will present a remarkable draft at today’s Government session, according to which our country is obliged to support at any cost, if, God forbid, astronauts will have to land in Armenia.

Back in 1968 London, Moscow and Washington signed an agreement on the “Rescue of Astronauts, the Return of Astronauts and the Return of Objects Launched into Outer Space”, which Armenia will soon join, if at the July 20 sitting of the government we ratify the agreement.

The contract calls for any possible assistance to the astronauts in case of accident, disaster or emergency landing, and ensure the rapid and safe return of cosmonauts, as well as the return of space objects launched to the space.

According to the Minister, this agreement is aimed at promoting international cooperation in the field of peaceful exploration and use of cosmic space.
