Westminster Group PLC (LON:WSG) has made progress on ways to move forward its contract for security equipment at an airport in Iran.

The US$24mln contract was put on hold following the US withdrawal from the Iran nuclear pact in May. The US move led to uncertainty among suppliers over possible sanctions against Iran.
