TEHRAN, Sep. 23 (MNA) – Deputy Minister of Roads and Urban Development Asghar Fakhriyeh said that talks are underway among Iranian sides, Airbus, and Boeing.

“Negotiations with Airbus are still underway but there are disagreements over some articles that should be concluded,” said Iranian Deputy Minister of Roads and Urban Development Asghar Fakhriyeh on Thursday.

The official recounted that the disputed articles are about the compensation process if Airbus fails to meet its commitment or the sanctions snap back, “Although we believe that the sanctions will never be resumed as the Europe and the US do not share the same stance as before.”

“We demand the same treatment from Airbus and naturally they have their own concerns,” highlighted the Iranian deputy minister, “but we will sign an agreement entailing national interests for us, so the remaining part of talks matters the most.”

He also asserted that the representatives of Boeing have been to Tehran four times so far and they are slated to visit Tehran again in the next week to continue talks on a draft sent formerly by the company.
