Russia and Iran signed an agreement to manufacture a research spacecraft

President of Tehran University Mohammad Moqimi said the academic center had recently signed an agreement with Moscow State University to develop a joint research spacecraft within two years, Iranian news agency Tasnim informed.

Mr. Moqimi announced the start of the project: the working group has already been assembled; scientific activities related to the space project have been launched. The President also noted that a special secretariat has been established in the research department of Tehran University to oversee the project.
