That depends. What if a country (or jurisdiction) does not have a 
export/import laws or its export/import laws stipulate that certain 
bilaterial agreements are in power for such cases. Having 'U.S.' in a law 
name does not mean that that law is not respected / enforced or complied with 
in any other jurisdiction. How do you think criminals repatration works 
between different jurisdictions... it is simply based on respecting other's 
jurisdictions laws by means of agreements we could hardly be familiar with 
for every single jurisdiction.
