MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Prominent whistleblower Edward Snowden on Tuesday described Amazon's decision to stop providing services to Iran's opposition as a "misguided attempt" to please the US government.   

Snowden re-tweeted a post by Nima Fatemi, an Iranian independent security researcher, who published a letter from Amazon saying that the company had "identified your account during a recent check for countries and regions where we are not authorized to provide services." Fatemi noted that the company's cloud services were exempted from US sanctions by law.

​Amazon said it had "a policy to comply with government sanctions and export control regulations."

Iran is currently under the wide-ranging US sanctions that were restored after Washington pulled out from the landmark 2015 nuclear deal.
