Iran intends to dispatch two satellites into space one week from now, President Hassan Rouhani reported Thursday.
Talking at a service denoting the second commemoration of the demise of previous President Ali Akbar Hashemi Rafsanjani, Rouhani said that “privately produced rockets” would be utilized to dispatch the satellites into space.
“Iran’s present resistance and innovative capacities can be to a great extent credited to Rafsanjani’s endeavors,” Rouhani affirmed.
He proceeded to depict the late Rafsanjani as a “remarkable political figure” who had played a “fundamental job” amid Iran’s overwhelming eight-year war with Iraq during the 1980s.
In his location, Rouhani gave no further insights about the arranged satellite dispatches.
