99-011                   WASHINGTON : 2002

                                           The White House,
                                          Washington, July 2, 2002.
Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: As required by 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), I transmit herewith the final 6-month report prepared 
by my Administration on the national emergency with respect to 
the Taliban that was declared in Executive Order 13129 of July 
4, 1999.
            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.
 Periodic Report on the National Emergency With Respect to the Taliban 
                             in Afghanistan

    I hereby report to the Congress on developments over the 
course of the past 6 months concerning the national emergency 
with respect to the actions and policies of the Taliban in 
Afghanistan that was declared in Executive Order 13129 of July 
4, 1999. 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), (``IEEPA'').
    1. As a consequence of the successful military campaign 
against the Taliban and al-Qaida in Afghanistan, the State 
Department, on January 29, 2002, published a notice in the 
Federal Register (67 FR 4301, January 29, 2002) determining 
that there is no longer any part of Afghanistan controlled by 
the Taliban. Subsequently, I have issued an Executive Order 
terminating the emergency with respect to the Taliban and 
amending Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001, to add 
Mohammed Omar and the Taliban to the Annex of that Order. The 
prohibitions with respect to transactions and dealings with the 
Taliban, as defined in the Order, therefore remain in effect.
    2. During the current reporting period, as of May 9, 2002, 
the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets 
Control (``OFAC'') issued a total of 28 licenses, consisting of 
three licenses to unblock funds in which there was determined 
to be no interest of the Taliban, 17 licenses to unblock assets 
of previously blocked Afghan entities to the control of the 
Interim Government of Afghanistan, six licenses permitting the 
transfer of blocked assets between financial institutions, one 
license authorizing the export/sale of telecommunications 
equipment to support the British Army in Afghanistan, and one 
license to the U.S. Attorney's Office to inspect and remove 
blocked property.
    3. Since my last report, OFAC has collected one civil 
penalty from a U.S. financial institution totaling $5,500 for 
violations of the Regulations. One completed penalty 
enforcement action is undergoing Departmental debt collection 
and two additional matters are undergoing penalty enforcement 
action at OFAC at this time.
    4. Pursuant to section 1641(c) of the NEA, I am submitting 
a final report to the Congress on the expenses incurred by the 
Federal Government that are directly attributable to the 
exercise of powers and authorities conferred by the declaration 
of the national emergency with respect to the Taliban in 
Afghanistan. The total expenses incurred since July 4, 1999, 
are estimated at approximately $2,770,000. Expenses during the 
past 6-month period are estimated at approximately $1,065,000. 
Personnel costs were largely centered in the Department of the 
Treasury (particularly in the Office of Foreign Assets Control, 
the Office of the General Counsel, and the U.S. Customs 
Service), the Department of State, and components of the 
Department of Justice.
