Russia, Indonesia Sign Satellite Launch Memorandum

Dec 16, 2005

Russia and Indonesia signed a memorandum Wednesday on the launch of a communications satellite at the end of the Russia Hi-Tech 2005 exposition in Malaysia's capital, reports RIA Novosti.

According to the agreement between Indonesian satellite communications operator Telcom and Russia's Kosmicheskaya Svyaz, Russia will manufacture and orbit a civil satellite that will broadcast for Russia and Indonesia, as well as other Southeast Asian countries.

"Besides representatives of interested state organizations and companies from Malaysia, the Russian exhibition was attended by participants of the Asean business investment forum that took place in Kuala Lumpur in the first half of December," an exposition official said.

"Many Russian participants [in the exposition] found promising partners in the region."
