Iran warned Wednesday that its multibillion-dollar deals for Airbus planes had been thrown into doubt by U.S. President Donald Trump's attacks on the nuclear deal.A specific clause in the 2015 nuclear deal, which lifted some international sanctions in exchange for curbs to Iran's atomic program, opened the way for Iran to purchase planes from international suppliers.Licenses were granted the following year by the U.S. Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control for Airbus to sell 100 planes to national carrier IranAir, which has also ordered 80 from Boeing.Trump Friday threatened to walk away from the nuclear deal unless progress was made on negotiations regarding Iran's missile program, and it is unclear if this would also lead to the OFAC licenses being revoked.
