                    U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
99-011                     WASHINGTON : 2002

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. 
I have sent the enclosed notice, stating that the Burma 
emergency is to continue beyond May 20, 2002, to the Federal 
Register for publication. The most recent notice continuing 
this emergency was published in the Federal Register on May 17, 
2001.
    The crisis between the United States and Burma, constituted 
by the actions and policies of the Government of Burma, 
including its policies of committing large-scale repression of 
the democratic opposition in Burma, that led to the declaration 
of a national emergency on May 20, 1997, has not been resolved. 
These policies are hostile to U.S. interests and pose a 
continuing unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
security and foreign policy of the United States. For this 
reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue the 
national emergency with respect to Burma and maintain in force 
the sanctions against Burma to respond to this threat.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, May 16, 2002.

                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


      Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Burma

    On May 20, 1997, the President issued Executive Order 
13047, certifying to the Congress under section 570(b) of the 
Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and Related Programs 
Appropriations Act, 1997 (Public Law 104-208) that the 
Government of Burma had committed large-scale repression of the 
democratic opposition in Burma after September 30, 1996, 
thereby invoking the prohibition on new investment in Burma by 
United States persons contained in that section. The President 
also declared a national emergency to deal with the threat 
posed to the national security and foreign policy of the United 
States by the actions and policies of the Government of Burma, 
invoking the authority, inter alia, of the International 
Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1703(c).
    Because actions and policies of the Government of Burma 
continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security and foreign policy of the United States, the 
national emergency declared on May 20, 1997, and the measures 
adopted on that date to deal with that emergency must continue 
in effect beyond May 20, 2002. Therefore, in accordance with 
section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 
1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency 
with respect to Burma. This notice shall be published in the 
Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, May 16, 2002.
