Iran Air condemns US sanctions

27-Jun-2011 11:21 AM

Iran Air CEO Farhad Parvaresh has condemned the recent sanctions imposed by the US against Iran’s state-owned flag carrier (AFP/, 26-Jun-2011). The CEO stated the airline is committed to international aviation law and is a member of IATA. The US government prohibited US entities from any transactions with the Tidewater Middle East Company, which operates seven port facilities in Iran, and Iran Air, using the reasoning that the two major components of the Iranian transport infrastructure are being used to help the country develop nuclear weapons.
