LONDON, Aug. 2 (UPI) -- Russia and England are discussing a number of possible cooperative space projects, Russian President Vladimir Putin said in visit to London Thursday.

"We plan to launch several British satellites," RIA Novosti reported Putin saying while summing up his short visit to the British capital.

Putin held talks earlier in the day with British Prime Minister David Cameron and watched Olympic judo competition.

Returning to the topic of space projects, Putin said, "We would like to receive a positive response to the deployment of a Glonass [Russian satellite navigation system] station here, in Britain, to make the signal for Europe even more precise.

"We also have opportunities of military and technical cooperation, which is good both from the viewpoint of the economy and political trust," he said.
