George W. Bush. The White House, June 11, 2001. President's Periodic Report on 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 I hereby report to the Congress on developments over the past six months concerning the national emergency with respect to the risk of nuclear proliferation created by the accumulation of weapons-usable fissile material (``Highly Enriched Uranium'') in the territory of the Russian Federation that was declared in Executive Order 13159 of June 21, 2000, (the ``Order''). 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). 1. On January 12, 2001, the Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control (``OFAC'') issued the HEU Agreement Assets Control Regulations, 31 CFR Part 540 (66 Fed. Reg. 3304, January 12, 2001) (the ``Regulations''), as an interim rule with request for public comment to implement Executive Order 13159. A copy of the Regulations is attached. 2. The Regulations have been disseminated by OFAC through both conventional and electronic means and affected parties have been notified. Federal agencies will continue to work closely to identify and block those assets directly related to the implementation of the HEU Agreements in which the Government of the Russian Federation has an interest and will vigorously enforce the Order to protect these assets while ensuring the continued effective operation of the HEU Agreements. 3. During the current reporting period, as of May 15, 2001, 17 licenses have been issued in furtherance of the Order's goals of protecting the blocked assets and ensuring full implementation of the HEU Regulations. These licenses authorize the importation of and payment for low enriched uranium, as well as the sale and exportation of and payment for natural uranium. 4. The expenses incurred by the Federal Government in the six-month period from December 21, 2000 through June 20, 2001 that are directly attributable to the exercise of powers and authorities conferred by the declaration 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 are estimated at approximately $2,000, most of which represent wage and salary costs for Federal personnel. Personnel costs were largely centered in the Department of the Treasury (particularly in the Office of Foreign Assets Control, the Offices of the Under Secretary for Enforcement, and the Office of the General Counsel), the Department of State (particularly the Bureau of Economic and Business Affairs, the Bureau of Nonproliferation, and the Office of the Legal Adviser), and the Department of Energy (particularly in the Office of the General Counsel, and the Office of Nuclear Energy). 5. The Order provides a tool for protecting 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. I shall continue to exercise the powers at my disposal and will continue to report periodically to the Congress on significant developments pursuant to 50 U.S.C. 1703(c). <GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>
