Iran said it is interested in buying British carmaker MG Rover. The company stopped production earlier this month after failing to secure a rescue deal.
Iran’s Minister of Industries and Mines Eshaq Jahangiri said talks on Iran buying the company have been held and the parties are in the assessment stage. Jahangiri said Iran’s automobile industry could reform the troubled European carmaker and produce a car under the same name.
It was unclear which Iranian companies want to participate in any deal with MG Rover.
Iran’s Khodro, the biggest carmaker in the Middle East, already said acquiring the British company did not fit in with its plans.
Jahangiri said Iran could team up with other Asian countries to buy the British company.
