The Korean giant, Samsung recently sent emails to its smartphones and tablet users stating that they will be blocking access to their App Store known as Samsung Apps because of legal barriers, as reported by the Associated Press.

The company said that the store will be taken on 22 May because of some legal issues about which the company declined to comment. This move might be because of the country’s disputed nuclear program and many may see it as a part of international sanctions imposed on the country. Last year, Nokia also stopped its services in Iran as reported by the AP. Unlike other big companies like Apple, Microsoft and Adobe, Samsung have provided localized services to the Iranian users in their native Persian language.
