    This article is tagged "United Nations Sanctions." However, if anyone takes trouble to actually READ the UN Sanctions resolution-- see http://www.globalpolicy.org/security/sanction/iran/2007/0324resolution.pdf-- it becomes immediately obvious that these sanctions deal with nuclear and ballistic missile technology and armaments, as well as individuals involved in developing them. There's no mention of food items or pistachio nuts. So the pistachio issue has everything to do with supporting California's pistachio industry and NOTHING to do with UN sanctions. (By the same logic, US diplomats could chide various countries for importing Israeli oranges instead of supporting the California and Florida industries.)
