TEHRAN, Feb. 07 (MNA) – On the occasion of the National Day of Space Technology, Iran's latest space achievements including Nahid-2 and Toloo-3 satellites were unveiled in a ceremony.

The unveiling ceremony of the Nahid-2 telecommunication satellite, and Toloo-3 satellite, was held in the presence of Iran's Information and Communications Technology Minister Issa Zarepour and the head of the Iranian Space Agency Hassan Salarieh.
