NASA's Nelson: Russia vital partner of US on ISS

United States National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) Administrator Bill Nelson (pictured) called Russia "a vital partner" of his country when it comes to cooperation on the International Space Station (ISS).

The space partnership between the two countries began when they built the ISS together, he told reporters, according to the TASS news agency. "I look forward to our discussions about the continuation of that extraordinary relationship," Nelson added.

"In times when things might be a little more difficult on the face of the earth, we seem to be getting along pretty good in space," the former Florida senator noted.
