Whether it was the opportunity to also strike a deal with Airbus and Peugeot, or whether France as a major nation is more interesting to sign a large-scale agreement with than others, is hard to say. But it is a fact now that Iran yesterday opted to sign a major political and commercial agreement in Paris with French president Francois Hollande - a deal that includes a cooperation agreement between the world's third-largest container carrier, France's CMA CGM, and Islamic Republic of Iran Shipping Lines (IRISL).
ShippingWatch has tried without success to confirm the details with IRISL on Friday, but no one is picking up the phone in Tehran and IRISL itself has not announced the deal on its website.
