Iran's Minister of Communications and Information Technology Ahmad Motamedi said in Tehran on Tuesday that Mesbah miniature satellite is going to be launched into space within the next one year and four months, IRNA reported.
Motamedi told a group of his staff that Iran's Aerospace Organization will be in charge of the project which is in the implementation phase.
The minister ruled out the speculations that Zohreh satellite project has reached a dead-end. He said however, that the project is rather a priority on his ministry's agenda.
He said the project has encountered an array of executive problems but it is hoped that necessary decisions will be taken on it in the future.
