TEHRAN, Nov. 07 (MNA) – Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Nasser Kan'ani says that the successful launch of the "Ghaem 100" satellite carrier demonstrates Iran's national authority.

In a tweet on Monday, the Iranian diplomat called the successful launch of "Ghaem 100" another demonstration of the national authority and ability of Iran's young scientists to achieve science and new technologies despite the sanctions.
