The foreign Ministry praised the launch of Irans first military satellite

The launch by Iran of a military satellite is not contrary to the resolutions of the UN security Council on the Iranian nuclear program, said the official representative of Russian foreign Ministry Maria Zakharova.

On Wednesday morning, the Iranian military successfully, at their request, they brought the first military satellite, "Nur" ("Light") for the 425-kilometer orbit by launching it with a rocket "Cased" ("Messenger"). U.S. Secretary of state Mike Pompeo questioned the fact that the withdrawal of a satellite into orbit consistent with the UN resolution.

"is not the first time the state, grossly violating international law and violating UN security Council resolution 2231, trying to deflect international condemnation, accusing Iran of unproven failure to comply with the security Council. Such techniques we qualify as unscrupulous, they have long been discredited, proved a complete failure. This is confirmed by the results of numerous discussions in the UN security Council on the implementation of resolution 2231," Zakharova said at a briefing on Thursday.

"As we know, neither the resolution nor the Joint comprehensive plan of action (AGREEMENT) to resolve the Iranian nuclear programme does not limit the rights and opportunities of Tehran in terms of the development of peaceful space exploration and development of respective national programmes," she said.
