According to him, Turkey will launch Turksat 5A satellite in the third quarter of 2020, and the first indigenous telecommunication satellite Turksat 6A in 2021.
"With this project, Turkey will be one of 10 countries in the world that produces its own communication satellites," Erdogan said.

Erdogan added that Turkey would reveal its National Space Program in 2020.
