My basis: directive should be near prohibiting

What's the OA?

C, D and E are straight out.

A sounds like "United States be prohibited from sale to other countries".

So this should be B.

Why is it not A?

In addition to Dahiya's comment, "directive that~" is, according to all my verbal resources, unidiomatic.

Directive on is quite commonly used

I believe directive is always followed by an adjective or by some introductory phrase
