ICT minister says Nahid satellite has not yet been launched

Tehran (ISNA) – Iran’s Minister of Communications and Information Technology, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi announced that final phases of delivering Nahis satellite to Defense Ministry are underway but the satellite has not yet been launched.

Azari Jahromi made the remarks on Saturday while accompanied local journalists at the Tehran-based space research center, showing them the satellite.

Speaking about rumors circulated regarding Nahid satellite explosion at the space center meant to launch it, he said, “I have no idea about what American officials say over the Semnan space center and the defense minister, who is in charge, should make a comment on this”.

“But what we do know is that the Nahid satellite is still being prepared at the Iranian Space Research Institute,” the minister added.

Earlier, in a Twitter post, Jahromi responded to US President Donald Trump, saying, "Me & Nahid 1 right now. Good Morning Donald Trump!" along with a picture that showed him with the satellite.
