Iran to launch satellite soon

Iran will launch a satellite in the near future, the acting chairman of the Geographical Organization of the Defense Ministry, Bahman Zomorodian, announced on Monday. Zomorodian said guarding Iran’s borders is part of the mandate of the Geographical Organization.

He also stated that the short-lived decision by the National Geographic Society to invent a fictitious name for the Persian Gulf was a pre-planned move, but the historical documents of Europe and the United States prove that the move was unjustified.

In the light of the illogical moves by certain countries, the organization has opened a fair to display historical documents showing that the name Persian Gulf has been used for over 2000 years.
