WASHINGTON/PARIS - Boeing Co, the world's biggest airplane manufacturer, on Friday said it received a license this week from the US Treasury Department to export certain spare parts for commercial aircraft to Iran as part of a temporary sanctions relief agreement reached in January.A Boeing spokesman said the company would now contact Iranian officials to determine which parts were needed. The executive said the license covered only components needed to ensure continued safe flight operations of older Boeing planes sold to Iran before the 1979 revolution.
