Iranian State Media Say Argentine Authorities Impound Mahan Air Aircraft

The Argentine government has impounded a Boeing 747 owned by Iran’s Mahan Air and leased to a Venezuelan state-owned airline at Buenos Aires airport, Iranian state-controlled media said on Sunday.

 

There was no official confirmation of the reports, published by state television and the semi-official ISNA news agency.

 

Iran and Venezuela have close ties. The two countries on Saturday signed a 20-year cooperation plan, according to Iranian state TV.
