TEHRAN, Oct. 21 (MNA) – Deputy Head of Iranian Space Agency Roshanian said Iran is planning to hold talks with five countries including Russia, France and Japan to expand international interactions in the field of aerospace.

Jafar Roshanian, Deputy Head of Iranian Space Agency, said Iran is keen on establishing relations with various countries to expand cooperation in aerospace domain, and as such is currently making plans to hold talks with Russia, France, Italy, Japan and China.

Roshanian further added that Iran is following up on its efforts to reclaim its domestically-made satellite Mesbah which was sent to Italy to conduct final research studies in 2003 but was confiscated there due to sanctions. He noted that once reclaimed, it would take three months for the satellite to be prepared for launch.

Roshanian also maintained that the Space Agency is working on other major projects such as designing GEO communication satellites and sending humans into space, adding “constructing and launching domestic satellites takes 8 to 10 years. We are hoping that these projects will be completed before the dawn of 2025."
