YEREVAN, Armenia, Jan. 31 (Xinhua) -- Armenia will join five international treaties on peaceful use of outer space, the Armenpress news agency reported Thursday.
Becoming a member of the U.N. Committee on the Peaceful Use of Outer Space (COPUOS), Armenia will join the five international agreements -- Outer Space Treaty, Rescue Agreement, Convention on Liability, Convention on Registration and Moon Agreement -- that regulate the activities of members in space.
Armenia in December was elected as a member of COPUOS in the General Assembly of the United Nations. The membership gives Armenia a chance to take part in new space projects.
In the frameworks of such projects, Armenian scientists will have the opportunity to visit scientific centers of space agencies of the United States, Europe and Russia.
