 CONTINUATION OF AN EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO PROPERTY OF THE RUSSIAN

     EXTRACTED FROM NUCLEAR WEAPONS, PURSUANT TO 50 U.S.C. 1622(d)

<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>


    June 12, 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 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 to the Federal Register for 
publication. This notice states 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, 2001.
    It remains a major national security goal of the United 
States to ensure that fissile material removed from 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 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 June 21, 2001.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, June 11, 2001.




                                 Notice

   Continuation of Emergency With Respect to Property of the Russian 
   Federation Relating to the Disposition of Highly Enriched Uranium 
                     Extracted From Nuclear Weapons

    On June 21, 2000, President Clinton 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 come within the United 
States, or that are or hereafter come within the possession or 
control of U.S. 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 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 disarmanent 
agreements is 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 possession or control of 
United States persons.
    The national emergency declared on June 21, 2000, must 
continue beyond June 21, 2001, to provide continued protection 
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 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 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 11, 2001.
