Adding to its English- and Arabic-language television channels, Iran launched a Spanish satellite station Tuesday, AFP reported.

The new channel, HispanTV, launches amidst increasingly warm ties between Iran and Latin American countries such as Venezuela and Cuba. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez sent a message to be read at the channel's opening, according to AFP.

Iran's London-based English-language channel Press TV recently lost its license due to editorial interference from Tehran.
