Because of US scrutiny of its drone program, a Taiwan company has stopped doing business with Iran.

A technology firm in Taiwan has suspended operations in Iran while it checks whether it violated international sanctions, as the United States increases scrutiny of Iran’s military and weapons production in light of the Russia-Ukraine conflict.

After concerns were raised by the non-profit group United Against Nuclear Iran (UANI), ATEN International immediately stopped accepting orders from Iran and exporting their products to the country, The Hill has learned.

Iran’s drone program has been targeted by numerous US sanctions, mainly because Iran supplies Russia with drones to use in its war against Ukraine. National Security Spokesperson John Kirby said that because of this, it is clear that Iran has directly supported Russia’s efforts to kill Ukrainians.
