                                MESSAGE

                                  from

                   THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

                              transmitting

NOTIFICATION THAT THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY DECLARED WITH RESPECT TO BURMA 
  IS TO CONTINUE IN EFFECT BEYOND MAY 20, 2001, PURSUANT TO 50 U.S.C. 
                                1622(d)

<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>


    May 15, 2001.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
     Committee on International Relations and ordered to be printed
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 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 to the Federal Register for publication, stating that 
the emergency declared with respect to Burma is to continue in 
effect beyond May 20, 2001. The most recent notice continuing 
this emergency was published in the Federal Register on May 19, 
2000.
    As long as the Government of Burma continues its policies 
of committing large-scale repression of the democratic 
opposition in Burma, this situation 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 maintain in force these 
emergency authorities beyond May 20, 2001.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, May 15, 2001.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


            Continuation of 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 has 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 Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1703(c)).
    The national emergency declared on May 20, 1997, must 
continue beyond May 20, 2001, because the Government of Burma 
continues its policies of committing large-scale repression of 
the democratic opposition in Burma, threatening the national 
security and foreign policy of the United States. 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 Burma. This notice shall be published in the 
Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, May 15, 2001.

                                <all>
