An Iranian minister said a domestically-built satellite failed to be launched into orbit on Tuesday over technical problems, Press TV reported.

The satellite, Payam, was launched to collect environmental information, but technical problems came during the final stage of the launch, Mohammad Javad Azari Jahromi, according to Iran's minister of Information and Communications Technology.

"The Payam satellite was successfully launched this morning aboard the Basir satellite carrier. But the satellite unfortunately failed to be placed in orbit in the final stage," Jahromi said.

Iran is preparing to launch another low-earth orbit satellite, Doosti, in the coming days, the minister said.

"This time, with extra efforts, we are going to show the world that Doosti will be a success," he added.
