What does it mean for Renault to stay in Iran ? Renault Pars is a JV 51% Renault / 49% AIDCO. Renault Pars will not be able to import KD parts into Iran unless Renault is ready to face US sanctions both in the USA and abroad. Communication is not everything. Do true friends keep the truth from eachother how unpleasant this may be ?
