    Republic of Panama is negotiating with ISRO to enter into technological collaboration for setting up a Satellite Tracking Station there, a senior Panamanian minister said on Saturday.

    Senior official level talks were fruitful and modalities were being worked out for installation of the station, so that system would be set up to track various satellites, Dr Ruben Berrocal Timmons, Minister of Science, Technology and Innovation, Republic of Panama, told reporters at Karunya University, about 25 km from Coimbatore.

    When asked about the utility of the station, he said Panama wanted to be an advanced scientific nation and such facility would help in tracking satellites sent by various countries.
