Kyiv: Iran will be ready to launch into space a new artificial satellite in a few months after yesterday's unsuccessful attempt.
It is reported by Reuters, citing a statement by Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.
“Problems with the launch of the satellite, which remained, are secondary. In a few months, they will be resolved and we will be ready for a new launch,” said Rouhani.
In turn, Western countries, especially the United States, sharply criticized the Iranian space program, fearing that rocket technology could be used by Tehran to develop nuclear warhead carriers.
As it is known, on January 15, Tehran could not launch a new satellite into orbit. According to Iranian Communications Minister Javad Azari, the rocket with the satellite did not reach the “required speed” in the third launch phase.
