customs data more than half of iran s car parts still coming through

Further on yesterday’s story on PSA’s, and by extension GM’s, alleged continuous supply of embargoed car parts to Iran, Bloomberg reports that Iran’s imports of automobile parts decreased by 47.8 percent to $254 million in the two months since March 20.

In other words, more than half of the previous amounts still come through. From March 20 to May 20, Iran imported more than 21,100 tons of car parts, says Bloomberg, citing Iranian newspaper reports based on customs data.

      @CJinSD Ford also is tied to PSA and BMW and the sanctions should be applied against Rogue Israel not Iran

    So theories of yesterday's story being Israeli propaganda were false then?
