Iranian authorities will sue Boeing at international tribunals for the latter's cancellation of an Iranian order for 80 aircraft, Iranian MP Taqi Kabiri said.

"The Islamic Republic will seriously pursue the cancellation of the Boeing agreement through international, legal and judicial tribunals," Press TV cited Kabiri as saying.

The news came after Boeing had backtracked on an earlier agreement to supply Iran with dozens of aircraft. AirBus is expected to follow suit having been stripped of a respective license in the wake of the US withdrawal from the Iranian nuclear pact.

Kabiri’s statement arrived two days after Boeing stated it would not fulfill a lucrative multi-billion-dollar contract to sell jets to the national carrier Iran Air, given the fact that it no longer has a license to trade with Iran.
