Iranian news service FARS is reporting that Eutelsat is in discussions with Iran’s Space Agency in order to build a satellite for the country.
“Eutelsat seeks cooperation with the Iranian Space Agency and is preparing a draft of its proposals to participate in the tender to build a satellite” for Iran, Francois Senemaud said during a meeting with Iranian Communications and Information Technology Minister Mahmoud Vaezi, and as reported by FARS.
Senemaud also urged the Iran-France joint economic commission to meet before the end of this year to discuss trade ties between businesses from both sides.
Reportedly, Iran is planning an international tender for the construction of a national satellite, however the tender date has yet to be announced.
