Boeing Urged to Withhold Details of Iran Contract

A lawmaker has called on US plane manufacturer Boeing to resist demands for disclosure of the details of its contract with Iran as it may pave the way for illegal seizure of the country’s assets by Washington that would undermine the nuclear deal. 
A US federal judge in a civil case focused on a 2003 terror attack allegedly backed by the Iranian government has ordered Boeing to turn over to victims details of a $16 billion contract with Iran Air, Iran’s flag carrier, to purchase 80 commercial planes. They are seeking to collect on a longstanding $67-million civil judgment against Iran, AP reported. 
The ruling, posted in the court docket Tuesday, rejects Boeing’s contention that providing the contract details to the victims would not only undermine the mega-contract with Iran Air but could jeopardize the nuclear deal itself. 
That deal lifted sanctions on Iran, and many hailed the Boeing contract in 2016 as an example of how the nuclear agreement benefited both countries.
