     Committee on International Relations and ordered to be printed
                               __________

                    U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
99-010                    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. 
In accordance with this provision, I have sent the enclosed 
notice, stating that the emergency declared with respect to the 
accumulation of a large volume of weapons-usable fissile 
material in the territory of the Russian Federation is to 
continue beyond June 21, 2002, to the Federal Register for 
publication. The most recent notice continuing this emergency 
was published in the Federal Register on June 14, 2001, (66 FR 
32207).
    It remains a major national security goal of the United 
States to ensure that fissile material removed form Russian 
nuclear weapons pursuant to various arms control and 
disarmament agreements is dedicated to peaceful uses, subject 
to transparency measures, and protected from diversion to 
activities of proliferation concern. The accumulation of a 
large volume of weapons-usable fissile material in the 
territory of the Russian Federation continues to pose an 
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 declared with respect to the accumulation of a large 
volume of weapons-usable fissile material in the territory of 
the Russian Federation and maintain in force these emergency 
authorities to respond to this threat.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, June 18, 2002.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


  Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to the Risk of 
  Nuclear Proliferation Created by the Accumulation of Weapons-Usable 
      Fissile Material in the Territory of the Russian Federation

    On June 21, 2000, the President issued Executive Order 
13159 (the ``Order'') blocking property and interests in 
property of the Government of the Russian Federation that are 
in the United States, that hereafter came within the United 
States, or that are or hereinafter come within the possession 
or control of United States persons that are directly related 
to the implementation of the Agreement Between the Government 
of the United States of America and the Government of the 
Russian Federation Concerning the Disposition of Highly 
Enriched Uranium Extracted from Nuclear Weapons, dated February 
18, 1993, and related contracts and agreements (collectively, 
the ``HEU Agreements''). The HEU Agreements allow for the 
downblending of highly enriched uranium derived from nuclear 
weapons to low enriched uranium for peaceful commercial 
purposes. The Order invoked the authority, inter alia, of the 
International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 1701 et 
seq., and declared a national emergency to deal with the 
unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and 
foreign policy of the United States posed by the risk of 
nuclear proliferation created by the accumulation of a large 
volume of weapons-usable fissile material in the territory of 
the Russian Federation.
    A major national security goal of the United States is to 
ensure that fissile material removed from Russian nuclear 
weapons pursuant to various arms control and disarmament 
agreements is dedicated to peaceful uses (such as downblended 
to low enriched uranium for peaceful commercial uses), subject 
to transparency measures, and protected from diversion to 
activities of proliferation concern. Pursuant to the HEU 
Agreements, weapons-grade uranium extracted from Russian 
nuclear weapons is converted to low enriched uranium for use as 
fuel in commercial nuclear reactors. The Order blocks and 
protects from attachment, judgment, decree, lien, execution, 
garnishment, or other judicial process the property and 
interests in property of the Government of the Russian 
Federation that are directly related to the implementation of 
the HEU Agreements and that are in the United States, that 
hereafter come within the United States, or that are or 
hereafter come within the United States, or that are or 
hereafter come within the possession or control of United 
States persons.
    The national emergency declared on June 21, 2000, must 
continue beyond June 21, 2002, to provide continued protection 
from attachment, judgment, decree, lien, execution, 
garnishment, or other judicial process for the property and 
interests in property of the Government of the Russian 
Federation that are directly related to the implementation of 
the HEU Agreements and subject to U.S. jurisdiction. 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 weapons-usable fissile 
material in the territory of the Russian Federation. This 
notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.
                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, June 18, 2002.
