    WASHINGTON — The Bush administration said it is approving exports to Iran of spare parts and other equipment for the country's national airline, despite the standoff with Tehran over its nuclear program.

    The State Department cited worries about travel safety in explaining the decision, which will allow the export of items used to repair turbine engines on Airbus aircraft operated by Iran Air.


    "We do not want to be in a position of threatening civil aviation," State Department spokesman Sean McCormack told reporters on Wednesday.
