1. Cooperation on forest fires and natural disasters
The Russian Federation has expressed its solidarity and empathy with Chile in fighting forest fires. Its concrete support was received in the summer of 2017 with the presence of the Ilyushin IL-76 fire fighting aircraft. In addition, Russia collaborated with Chile by installing field hospitals during the 2010 earthquake.
2. Cooperation in Antarctic Affairs
The Russian Federation has been a Party to the Antarctic Treaty since June 23, 1961. In 1996 the Antarctic Cooperation Agreement was promulgated between the governments of Chile and the Russian Federation. The agreement establishes the creation of a permanent consultation mechanism on matters of mutual interest in the political, legal and scientific spheres, as well as in other fields within the framework of the Antarctic Treaty.
3. Space Cooperation
Chile and Russia signed in 2004 an Agreement on Cooperation in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space for Peaceful Purposes. Within the framework of this Agreement, in April 2017 a consultation meeting was held between the Council of Ministers for Space Development of Chile and the Roscosmos State Space Corporation, in order to exchange information on possible space cooperation projects.
