"Bolivia suggested in June that we should think about educational programs, training in managing and maintaining communication satellites, and organizing the visit of a Russian cosmonaut to Bolivia. I have sent a relevant letter to Roscosmos," the ambassador said.

Sprinchan recalled that that there was an observatory in the southern Bolivian region of Tarija that was built in cooperation with the Soviet Union in the 1970s.

"We discussed the possibility of joint observation of the southern hemisphere, the exchange of information about space debris with the director [of the observatory]. I have sent a letter to Roscosmos, the body showed great interest," the diplomat added.
