What will Iran’s deal with Boeing mean for the aerospace industry?
Iran's state airline says it's signed a $16.6 billion deal with US aircraft maker Boeing.

So is this the first big sign of a thawing relationship, or will matters be complicated by President-Elect Trump's indication of anti-Iranian policies?

Rupee ban hurts Indian economy – could the damage get worse?
