India signs MoU with Nigeria on cooperation in exploration and uses of outer space

A Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) has been signed between India and Nigeria on cooperation in the exploration and uses of outer space for peaceful purposes.

The National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) of Nigeria at Abuja in August 2020 and Indian Space Research Organisation at Bengaluru in June 2020 signed the agreement.

It has been more than a decade that both the nations have been trying to have formal space cooperation, said an official release. Adding further, it said, “The MoU will lead to setting up a joint working group, drawing members from Department of Space (DOS)/ ISRO and National Space Research and Development Agency (NASRDA) of Nigeria, which will further work out the plan of action including the time-frame and the means of implementation.”
