US State Department welcomes deal between Boeing and Iran Air
US State Department spokesman John Kirby welcomed Boeing's announcement that it had signed a memorandum of understanding with state carrier Iran Air.
"The State Department welcomes Boeing's announcement of this deal with Iran Air, which involves the type of permissible business activity envisioned in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action. Boeing has been in close contact with the State Department regarding this deal. We committed, as you know, to license sales of civil passenger aircraft and will continue to implement this in all of our JCPOA commitments," The Daily Mail cited him as slaying.
He added that "the JCPOA provides an opening for civil aviation companies, including American companies, to pursue legitimate commerce with Iran, and we note reports of progress in the aviation sector, which is good both — for both the economy and for public safety."
