                                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.
