Iran's civil aviation authority has confirmed that exploration of a flight connection with the USA is among items on the agency's agenda.

The head of the Civil Aviation Organisation, Hamid Reza Pahlevani, says the agency is prepared to follow the Iranian president's guidance regarding a possible restoration of flights between the two countries.

US government sanctions have blocked air services for decades.

But the Civil Aviation Organisation says it will be ready to take action in the event that a memorandum of understanding to resume a connection is signed.
