Albania on Wednesday announced that it will launch two satellites into space in 2022, in collaboration with California-based SpaceX.

"Albania in orbit, incredible but real," Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama said in a video posted on his official social media, announcing that the country will launch two satellites into orbit in 2022.

At the beginning of the video, Rama speaks with an official from Elon Musk's SpaceX company, which will launch the satellites.

Details of SpaceX's Falcon 9 launch are shown to Rama.

Albania's first satellite named "Albania 1" will be sent into orbit in March 2022, followed by "Albania 2" in June.

In the video, no information was given about the type of satellites.

Rama has recently announced that Albania will have its own satellites to strengthen its control over its territory.
