Tehran, IRNA -- The Ministry of Information and Communications Technology of Iran said that the administration of President Ebrahim Raisi was speeding up the development of the space industry of the Islamic Republic.

The ministry explained that the Raisi administration is determined to make use of the benefits of the space as much as possible.

The Supreme Space Council of Iran held its first meeting last year to resume its activities after a decade-long pause.

The council decided to prepare a 10-year plan for the space industry of the Islamic country, so it held tens of specialized sessions.

The Supreme Space Council of Iran, as the coordinator of all apparatuses active in this regard, has made all-out efforts to prepare a 10-year program on the basis of experts' suggestions as well as the realities on the ground and real infrastructure available in the country.

Therefore, skepticism about Iran's space program has its roots in a media propaganda campaign, which has been hatched to disappoint the elite and scientists.

Launching three research and operational satellites into orbit, out of which two of the launches have been successful, should be seen as the reality.
