The United States is reviewing licenses for Boeing and Airbus to sell aircraft to Iran.
Reuters quotes Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin (pictured) as telling the House Ways and Means Committee:
“We will use everything within our power to put additional sanctions on Iran, Syria and North Korea to protect American lives … I can assure you that’s a big focus of mine and I discuss it with the president.”
It adds that Iran Air has agreed to buy 200 American and European passenger aircraft worth up to $37 billion at list prices, though such deals typically include big discounts.
