France ‘hopeful’ ATR can deliver planes to Iran

July 31, 2018 - 21:6

TEHRAN – The French minister of economy and finance on Tuesday expressed hope that the ATR aircraft manufacturer will be able to get permission from the United States to deliver eight planes to Iran before August 6 despite the sanctions imposed on Tehran.

“I am confident that the United States will give us authorization to deliver these planes,” said Bruno Le Maire, Reuters reported.

Under the shadow of the new U.S. sanctions imposed on Tehran, international plane manufacturers that use at least 10% U.S. made parts in their products have decided to avoid the Iranian market.
