China Launches Two Saudi Arabian Reconnaissance Satellites into Space

BEIJING China launched two Saudi Arabian reconnaissance satellites on Friday from its Jiuquan base in the northwestern part of the country, state news agency Xinhua reported.

The satellites, which will have an active life of five years, were launched on a Long March-2D rocket at 12:12 pm.

The satellites were designed by the King Abdulaziz City for Science and Technology in Riyadh and will be used to capture high-resolution images of the Earth for various purposes.

The launch was part of a cooperation framework established between Saudi Arabia and China in 2016, the Saudi Arabian authorities said.

In 2017, Chinese President Xi Jinping and Saudi Arabian King Salman bin Abdulaziz agreed to boost bilateral cooperation in all areas, and promote a comprehensive strategic partnership.
