US-based aerospace and arms giant Lockheed Martin has denied reports that it is looking for business in Iran.
In a brief statement, the company said:
“Consistent with US Government policy, Lockheed Martin is not pursuing business opportunities in Iran.”
It had been rumoured that the company’s Sikorsky subsidiary was interested in selling its S-76 and longer-range S-92 helicopters to Iran.
