Rise of exports by nearly a third attributed to USD 89.2 million grain sale swells. Data comes as EU set to pass further sanctions over Tehran’s shipping sector.
US exports to Iran rose by nearly a third this year, chiefly because of grain sales, according to US data released last week, despite the tightening of US financial sanctions.
The jump to USD 199.5 million in the first eight months of 2012 from USD150.8 million a year earlier, according to Census Bureau data, is surprising given Western efforts to isolate Iran economically because of its suspected pursuit of nuclear arms.
The increase masks a drop in the export of some humanitarian goods such as medicines.
This decline in US exporters are blamed largely on the difficulty of getting paid by Iranian importers because of new US financial sanctions.
However, exports rose in several other categories.
Sales of milk products including cream, butter and other fats and oils derived from dairy more than doubled to USD 20.3 million from USD 7.8 million.
Medical, dental, surgical and other “electro-diagnostic apparatus” rose to USD 8 million from USD 4.7 million.

Hypocrites are not identified by what they say. Nor by what they do.
A hypocrite do not practice what He preach.
So you must obey them and do everything they tell you. But do not do what they do, for they do not practice what they preach.
The present US Administration fit perfectly into this category. Obama preach sanctions against Iran, but secure an increase in export to the Ayatollah regime in Iran.
This is bad and dirty politics.
Israel must not take the advises from President Obama seriously. The “Hussein” in the White House is a con man, not to be trusted.
Israel must rely on her God, and the Jewish people put their trust in Him.
