Dubai: A delegation of scientists from Saudi Arabia are set to visit India to ink an agreement with space agency ISRO for boosting cooperation that will help the country develop an indigenous space programme.
The Saudi delegation, comprising of the country's leading scientists will visit the India Space Research Organisation later this month.
The visit of Saudi scientists would pave the way for a cooperation that will help Riyadh develop its indigenous space programme for peaceful purposes, an Arab daily reported.
The agreement to boost cooperation in space science is in line with an MoU signed between the two countries' space agencies during Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's visit to Riyadh earlier this year.
In the Riyadh Declaration signed during the Prime Minister's historic tour of Saudi Arabia in February-March this year, both the countries besides covering security, economic, defence and political areas had agreed on cooperation on peaceful use of outer space. The memorandum was signed between India's Department of Science and Technology (DST) and Saudi Arabia's King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology (KACST).
