The house of Representatives adopted two amendments that could disrupt the planned multi-billion dollar deal between Boeing and the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The first amendment prohibits the office of control of foreign property to use the funds for the approval of licenses for the sale of aircraft to Iran.
The second amendment prohibits us financial institutions to provide loans for the purchase of aircraft that can be converted for military purposes.
The amendments must be approved by the Senate. According to experts, if these measures are taken, the deal between Boeing and Iran Air in an amount not less than $ 25 billion would be under threat.
The Ministry of foreign Affairs said that the decisions taken by Congress, the amendments do not conform to the agreement on the nuclear program, demanding the lifting of economic sanctions against Tehran.
As previously reported, former U.S. Ambassador to Israel Thomas Pickering has been promoting a deal with Iran, simultaneously worked at the Boeing company, which immediately after the lifting of sanctions has signed a deal with Iran to $ 25 billion.
