KUALA LUMPUR, Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- Russia has offered to sell to Malaysia the spaceship Soyuz TMA-11 in which Malaysian first astronaut Sheikh Muszaphar Shukor flew to the International Space Station (ISS) recently.

The offer "is a good idea" but the government had not made any decision on the matter, Malaysian Science, Technology and Innovation Minister Jamaludin Jarjis said at the gathering of Barisan Nasional Back Benchers Club (BNBBC) with the National Astronaut here on Monday

"I received the offer while waiting for Sheikh Muszaphar's return in Russia. We are discussing the matter and if the price isright we can bring it back to Malaysia.

"Furthermore, Sheikh Muszaphar flew in it which is a historical event," Malaysian national news agency Bernama quoted the minister as saying.

He added that he would submit the matter to the cabinet.

Public support on the purchase was also necessary, he said.

The Soyuz TMA-11 carried Sheikh Muszaphar and two other astronauts, Flight Engineer Yuri Malenchenko from Russia and Commander Peggy Whitson from the United States to the ISS on Oct. 10.
