American airplane maker Boeing says it has reached a deal to sell 30 aircraft to an Iranian airline.

The $3 billion sale of passenger aircraft is the second deal the American aerospace company has reached with an Iranian airline.

Boeing announced the latest deal with Aseman Airlines on Tuesday.

Last December, Iran Air agreed to buy 80 Boeing passenger planes in a deal worth $16.6 billion.

Officials of United States and Iran meet in connection with nuclear negotiations that eased sanctions on Iran.

The deals were made possible by an agreement signed by Iran and six world powers including the U.S. The deal limited Iran’s uranium enrichment activities in an effort to keep the country from developing nuclear weapons. In exchange, many trade and financial sanctions on Iran were lifted.

In a statement, Boeing says the deal is expected to create or sustain 18,000 jobs. Boeing would look to the Office of Foreign Assets Control for approval of the sale. The office is part of the United States Treasury Department.

During the campaign for president, United States President Donald Trump was strongly critical of the Iran deal. But Trump has also said creating jobs is a main concern for his administration.

If the deal is approved, Aseman Airlines is expected to start receiving the airplanes in 2022 according to Boeing.
