China will launch a communications satellite for Pakistan at an "appropriate time" in the coming days, a Chinese spokesman said on Wednesday.
A spokesman for the Xichang Satellite Launch Center in southwest China's Sichuan Province told that the satellite, the PAKSAT-1R, will be carried by a Long March-3B carrier rocket. Both the satellite and rocket are currently in good condition. This satellite will meet a great need and demand of Pakistan in communication sector . It will also help in self reliance and growth in economy. Pakistan has this honour that it is also one among the top most countries which have their own satellites in the space. Pakistanis are no less than any other nation in the world. Be a proud Pakistani.
