The measure came after the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) of the US Treasury Department has intensified embargo on Iran on October 5 and blacklisted Iran Air which led to IATA's refusel to continue cooperation with Civil Aviation Organization of Iran (Iran Air).
The Managing Director of Civil Aviation Organization of Iran Farhad Parvaresh, told ISNA, "I have written a letter to IATA Secretary General that that their action goes against international rules and IATA Articles of Association. We called for them to avoid the decision."
"IATA is a non-governmental organization formed by membership of aviation companies and it is not obliged to follow the US embargo against Iran," he added.
