Iran to fight more sanctions against Iran Air

29-Jun-2011 12:09 PM

Iran's Foreign Ministry stated it will counter sanctions against Iranian carriers preventing them from obtaining spare parts for aircraft and blocking Iran Air from refuelling at some European airports (Reuters, 28-Jun-2011). The US State Department announced last week that it was stepping up sanctions against two Iranian companies including Iran Air. Iran Air announced in late 2010 that it intends to challenge fuel sanctions in an international court.
