Pakistan to jointly launch multi-purpose satellite

Islamabad, Jan 31, IRNA -- A multi-purpose small satellite developed by China, Pakistan, Iran, Thailand and other countries will be launched in 2006.

The News reported in its Monday issue that other countries who were also party to the project were Bangladesh, Mangolia and South Korea.

Work on the project was launched in 1992 under the tag of multi-lateral cooperation, the report said.

A substantial breakthrough has been achieved in the past to set up the Asia-Pacific Space Cooperation Organisation, the newspaper added.

Brazil and some other countries outside the Asia-Pacific region came as observers, and it has been agreed that the proposed APSCO would be based in Beijing, according to The News.
