Wrong title, Iran did not launch any satellite, they tested a rocket capable of launching satellites.

Some time ago Iran launched its first satellite using a Russian rocket, and at the time they said that they wanted to have the capability of doing it without the need of foreign help.

This is the next step in their intentions to have the capability of launching their own satellites.
