Russia and China are planning to merge their satellite tracking systems, RT.com reports.

The giant system will be able to cover most of an area including China, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan, India and Pakistan. according to RT, the Russian-funded news outlet.

The two nations will reportedly negotiate terms of the merger in May during a conference in China.

Russia and China will be able to share data on positions of navigation satellite groups and to improve efficiency in a real-time environment, RT reported.

The merger was initiated by Chinese officials.

"If the project is implemented, it will allow for an improvement in accuracy for both systems," a spokesman for the Russian Federal Space Agency, Roscosmos said.

Japan and India are getting set for their own regional navigation satellite systems, RT reported. The system is expected to be operational by the end of the year.

Meanwhile, a Chinese space station burned up upon re-entering Earth's atmosphere in the central South Pacific on Sunday.

The New York Times said there were no reported injuries.
