France has supported the satellite Bangabandhu-1 project from its inception and thanked the French company Thales Alenia Space, designer and manufacturer of the satellite, as well as the U.S. launching company Space X, for their full success in its realisation and launch.

"This is a historic occasion, which is a matter of great pride for the people of Bangladesh within the country and beyond", said Mohammad Ziauddin, Bangladesh's ambassador to the United States, in a statement on Thursday.

"Once Bangabandhu Satellite-1 is operational, Bangladesh will be autonomous in terms of telecommunications and broadcasting services, being able to offer communications services to many foreign countries, such as Nepal, Myanmar or Bhutan under its coverage area", stated Thales Alenia Space representatives.
