BEIJING: Pakistan and China are actively cooperating in space technology, said Wu Ping, the spokesperson for China Manned Space Engineering Programme, here on Sunday.

She expressed these views while responding to a question at a press conference she addressed to brief the media about the successful manual docking between the Shenzhou-9 spacecraft and the orbiting Tiangong-1 lab module by three Chinese astronauts.

It was the first such attempt in China’s history of space exploration. In reply to a question, Ms Wu said that with further advancement “we will use our technology to train foreign astronauts and possibly they will be taken onboard China Shenzhou spacecraft”.

She said that Liu Yang, lady astronaut aboard the Shenzhou-9, was in charge of space experiments and doing her job smoothly.

Being the first lady in space, she was provided all facilities.—APP
