Chennai: India is likely to discuss with Russia on supply of critical components for its human space capsule that would carry Indian cosmonauts to the space.

The two countries are expected to negotiate the contracts for supply of crew seats, windows and spacesuits for India's human space mission named Gaganyaan, said Russian state-run space corporation Roscosmos.

According to Roscosmos, a top level meeting between Russia and India is likely to be held during the Eastern Economic Forum from September 4 to 6 in Russia's Vladivostok.

The two countries will also discuss on cooperation in the sphere of piloted space flights, satellite navigation and engine technology, Roscosmos said in a statement after a meeting between its Director General Dmitry Rogozin and India's National Security Advisor Ajit Doval in Moscow on August 21.
