104th Congress, 2d Session - - - - - - - - - - - - Document 104-250 CONTINUATION OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO IRAQ __________ MESSAGE FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES Transmitting NOTIFICATION THAT THE IRAQI EMERGENCY IS TO CONTINUE IN EFFECT BEYOND AUGUST 2, 1996, PURSUANT TO 50 U.S.C. 1622(d) <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT> July 23, 1996.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the Committee on International Relations and ordered to be printed July 23, 1996 To the Congress of the United States: Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)) provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency unless, prior to the anniversary date of its declaration, the President publishes in the Federal Register and transmits to the Congress a notice stating that the emergency is to continue in effect beyond the anniversary date. In accordance with this provision, I have sent the enclosed notice, stating that the Iraqi emergency is to continue in effect beyond August 2, 1996, to the Federal Register for publication. The crisis between the United States and Iraq that led to the declaration on August 2, 1990, of a national emergency has not been resolved. The Government of Iraq continues to engage in activities inimical to stability in the Middle East and hostile to United States interests in the region. Such Iraqi actions pose a continuing unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and vital foreign policy interests of the United States. For these reasons, I have determined that it is necessary to maintain in force the broad authorities necessary to apply economic pressure on the Government of Iraq. William J. Clinton. The White House, July 22, 1996. Notice ---------- Continuation of Iraqi Emergency On August 2, 1990, by Executive Order 12722, President Bush declared a national emergency to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States constituted by the actions and policies of the Government of Iraq. By Executive Orders 12722 of August 2, 1990, and 12724 of August 9, 1990, the President imposed trade sanctions on Iraq and blocked Iraqi Government assets. Because the Government of Iraq has continued its activities hostile to United States interests in the Middle East, the national emergency declared on August 2, 1990, and the measures adopted on August 2 and August 9, 1990, to deal with that emergency must continue in effect beyond August 2, 1996. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing the national emergency with respect to Iraq. This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress. William J. Clinton. The White House, July 22, 1996.
