The European Union is considering banning the sale of drone parts to certain countries.
Following the disclosure of a 47-page document by Ukraine to seven industrial powers regarding the use of parts from Western countries and other resources in Iranian-produced drones used by Russia in the war against Ukraine, the European Union has warned its member countries to review the ban on selling certain parts to third countries.
According to The Guardian, on Friday, the European Commission, the executive arm of the European Union, issued a warning to both companies and member state governments.
The spokesperson for the European Commission said that the presented evidence proves that sanctions should be enforced with greater strictness and foreign operators should be more closely monitored to ensure that sanctioned goods are not exported again without the knowledge of European exporters and to ensure that the sanctions are not circumvented.
According to EU customs data, the Islamic Republic of Iran has imported almost all the necessary parts for building drones from Turkey, India, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Vietnam, and Costa Rica.
