China praises India on successful mission

Wednesday, 24 July 2019 | PTI | Beijing

China on Tuesday congratulated India on the successful launch of the Chandrayaan-2 and expressed its desire to work with New Delhi for outer space exploration as both countries stepped up their space programmes including plans to build their own space stations.

"So, congratulations. We have noted the relevant reports and we welcome the successful launch of this probe by India," Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying told a media briefing in response to a question.

India on Monday successfully launched its second lunar mission Chandrayaan-2 on board its powerful rocket GSLV-MkIII-M1 from the spaceport in Sriharikota to explore the unchartered South Pole of the celestial body by landing a rover.

"The exploration of outer space including the Moon, is the common cause of all human beings. They should contribute to the welfare of all people," she said.

"China is committed to the peaceful use of outer space and we actively engaged in international communication and cooperation on the issue," she said.
