Iran Air have ended service to Turkmenistan(Ashkabad) and Kazakhstan(Almaty) both were served with A310-200/300 nonstop from Tehran, Uzbekistan's capital Tashkent is now the only destination they serve in the region and that too has been brought down to an F100 from A310.
Another carrier Iran Aseman Airlines pulled out of the region completely last year they were operating to Tajikistan(Dushanbe) and Kyghyzstan(Bishkek) from Mashad with F100.

Many of Airbus components (starting with the engines), are US made, and consequently subject to US government embargo. Although Airbus is assembled in Europe, it could not fly without US components. The best example are avionics - digital electronics technology is completely dominated by American companies. Even large European electronic companies that make avionics (BAE, Thales, ...) use mostly American components and technology. For example most, if not all, microprocessors are American - Intel, Motorola, AMD, ....
