Roscosmos chief Anatoly Perminov, on a tour of Latin America as part of a delegation led by Deputy Prime Minister Igor Sechin, said the two countries were working on a space cooperation agreement and had considered ways of jointly using earth remote sensing satellites and space-based telecommunication systems.
Discussions are also underway on Cuba's use of the Glonass satellite navigation system, and on the space center.
"We have tentatively discussed the possibility of assisting Cuba to build its own space center," the official said.
He said Cuban specialists would soon visit Russia to be shown state-of-the-art space technology and equipment.
