 CONCERNING THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO ANGOLA, PURSUANT TO

   March 25, 1996.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
     Committee on International Relations and ordered to be printed
To the Congress of the United States:
    I hereby report to the Congress on the developments since 
September 26, 1995, concerning the national emergency with 
respect to Angola that was declared in Executive Order No. 
12865 of September 26, 1993. This report is submitted pursuant 
to section 401(c) of the National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 
1641(c), and section 204(c) of the International Emergency 
Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1703(c).
    On September 26, 1993, I declared a national emergency with 
respect to Angola, invoking the authority, inter alia, of the 
International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et 
seq.) and the United Nations Participation Act of 1945 (22 
U.S.C. 287c). Consistent with United Nations Security Council 
Resolution 864, dated September 15, 1993, the order prohibited 
the sale or supply by United States persons or from the United 
States, or using U.S.-registered vessels or aircraft, of arms 
and related materiel of all types, including weapons and 
ammunition, military vehicles, equipment and spare parts, and 
petroleum and petroleum products to the territory of Angola 
other than through designated points of entry. The order also 
prohibited such sale or supply to the National Union for the 
Total Independence of Angola (``UNITA''). United States persons 
are prohibited from activities that promote or are calculated 
to promote such sales or supplies, or from attempted 
violations, or from evasion or avoidance or transactions that 
have the purpose of evasion or avoidance, of the stated 
prohibitions. The order authorized the Secretary of the 
Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to take 
such actions, including the promulgation of rules and 
regulations, as might be necessary to carry out the purposes of 
the order.
    1. On December 10, 1993, the Treasury Department's Office 
of Foreign Assets Control (``FAC'') issued the UNITA (Angola) 
Sanctions Regulations (the ``Regulations'') (58 Fed. Reg. 
64904) to implement the President's declaration of a national 
emergency and imposition of sanctions against Angola (UNITA). 
There have been no amendments to the Regulations since my 
report of September 18, 1995.
    The Regulations prohibit the sale or supply by United 
States persons or from the United States, or using U.S.-
registered vessels or aircraft, of arms and related materiel of 
all types, including weapons and ammunition, military vehicles, 
equipment and spare parts, and petroleum and petroleum products 
to UNITA or to the territory of Angola other than through 
designated points. United States persons are also prohibited 
from activities that promote or are calculated to promote such 
sales or supplies to UNITA or Angola, or from any transaction 
by any United States persons that evades or avoids, or has the 
purpose of evading or avoiding, or attempts to violate, any of 
the prohibitions set forth in the Executive order. Also 
prohibited are transactions by United States persons, or 
involving the use of U.S.-registered vessels or aircraft, 
relating to transportation to Angola or UNITA of goods the 
exportation of which is prohibited.
    The Government of Angola has designated the following 
points of entry as points in Angola to which the articles 
otherwise prohibited by the Regulations may be shipped: 
Airports: Luanda and Katumbela, Benguela Province; Ports: 
Luanda and Lobito, Benguela Province; and Namibe, Namibe 
Province; and Entry Points: Malongo, Cabinda Province. Although 
no specific license is required by the Department of the 
Treasury for shipments to these designated points of entry 
(unless the item is destined for UNITA), any such exports 
remain subject to the licensing requirements of the Departments 
of State and/or Commerce.
    2. The FAC has worked closely with the U.S. financial 
community to assure a heightened awareness of the sanctions 
against UNITA--through the dissemination of publications, 
seminars, and notices to electronic bulletin boards. This 
educational effort has resulted in frequent calls from banks to 
assure that they are not routing funds in violation of these 
prohibitions. United States exporters have also been notified 
of the sanctions through a variety of media, including special 
fliers and computer bulletin board information initiated by FAC 
and posted through the U.S. Department of Commerce and the U.S. 
Government Printing Office. There have been no license 
applications under the program.
    3. The expenses incurred by the Federal Government in the 
6-month period from September 18, 1995, through March 25, 1996, 
that are directly attributable to the exercise of powers and 
authorities conferred by the declaration of a national 
emergency with respect to Angola (UNITA) are reported to be 
about $226,000, most of which represents wage and salary costs 
for Federal personnel. Personnel costs were largely centered in 
the Department of the Treasury (particularly in the Office of 
Foreign Assets Control, the U.S. Customs Service, the Office of 
the Under Secretary for Enforcement, and the Office of the 
General Counsel) and the Department of State (particularly the 
Office of Southern African Affairs).
    I will continue to report periodically to the Congress on 
significant developments, pursuant to 50 U.S.C. 1703(c).

                                                William J. Clinton.
    The White House, March 25, 1996.
