Three US Republican lawmakers have written a letter to Boeing urging the company not to sell aircraft to Iran.
Accusing Iran of sponsoring terrorism, the Illinois Republicans wrote to Boeing’s Chief Executive Officer Dennis Muilenburg and claimed that such commercial transactions would effectively subsidize Iran, The Hill reported.
The letter is signed by Reps. Peter Roskam, Robert Dold and Randy Hultgren.
Boeing said in April that it began preliminary discussions in Tehran with Iranian airlines about potentially selling its planes and aircraft services.
