Iran plans to launch two domestically made satellites

16 January 2019 Current Affairs:

Iran plans to launch two domestically made satellites into orbit to gather information on its environment.  The announcement was made by Iran’s President Hassan Rouhani. 
One Satellite named Payam would orbit the earth at about 600 kilometres (370 miles) above its surface. The second satellite Doosti would be tasked with the same purpose as Payam, with a focus on agriculture, and would orbit at an altitude of 250 kilometres. Both the satellites had been successfully tested and are ready for launch in the coming days. 
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Iran's plans for sending satellites into orbit would violate a 2015 UN Security Council resolution which endorsed an international accord on ending Tehran's nuclear programme.
