"NASA will conduct in-depth training for astronauts of the Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) with the aim of starting joint work on the International Space Station in 2024," the White House said in a statement.

The space agencies of the United States and India plan to develop a program of cooperation in the field of manned space flights by the end of 2023.

The parties agreed to exchange satellite data on climate change, natural resource management and disaster management.

Earlier, Roscosmos determined the composition of the crews to prepare for flights to the ISS in the fall of 2023 and spring of 2024.

The prime crew of Expeditions 70 and 71 includes Russian cosmonauts Oleg Kononenko and Nikolai Chub, as well as NASA astronaut Loral O'Hara. They will go to the ISS in September 2023 on the Soyuz MS-24 spacecraft.
