The International Lunar Research Station would also be open to use by other countries, the China National Space Administration said on Wednesday
India's Geosynchronous Satellite Launch Vehicle, GSLV MkIII-M1 had successfully launched the 3,840-kg Chandrayaan-2 spacecraft into the earth's orbit on July 22.
The space agency said the mission represented a significant technological leap compared to the previous missions, which brought together an Orbiter, Lander and Rover to explore the unexplored south pole of the Moon.
According to Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO), by firing Chandrayaan-2 on-board motors, the space craft will be moved into the lunar orbit.
Another former ISRO Chairman, A S Kiran Kumar, described the proposed soft-landing as one of the very critical operations.
