                                  from

                   THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

                              transmitting

 NOTIFICATION THAT THE IRAN EMERGENCY IS TO CONTINUE IN EFFECT BEYOND 
             MARCH 15, 2003, PURSUANT TO 50 U.S.C. 1622(d)

<GRAPHIC(S) NOT AVAILABLE IN TIFF FORMAT>


   March 13, 2003.--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. 
In accordance with this provision, I have sent the enclosed 
notice, stating that the Iran emergency is to continue in 
effect beyond March 15, 2003, to the Federal Register for 
publication. The most recent notice continuing this emergency 
was published in the Federal Register on March 14, 2002 (67 FR 
11553).
    The crisis between the United States and Iran constituted 
by the actions and policies of the Government of Iran, 
including its support for international terrorism, efforts to 
undermine Middle East peace, and acquisition of weapons of mass 
destruction and the means to deliver them, that led to the 
declaration of a national emergency on March 15, 1995, has not 
been resolved. These actions and policies are contrary to the 
interests of the United States in the region and pose a 
continuing unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States. For 
these reasons, I have determined that it is necessary to 
continue the national emergency declared with respect to Iran 
and maintain in force comprehensive sanctions against Iran to 
respond to this threat.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, March 12, 2003.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


      Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Iran

    On March 15, 1995, by Executive Order 12957, the President 
declared a national emergency with respect to Iran pursuant to 
the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to 
the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the 
United States constituted by the actions and policies of the 
Government of Iran, including its support for international 
terrorism, efforts to undermine the Middle East peace process, 
and acquisition of weapons of mass destruction and the means to 
deliver them. On May 6, 1995, the President issued Executive 
Order 12959 imposing more comprehensive sanctions to further 
respond to this threat, and on August 19, 1997, the President 
issued Executive Order 13059 consolidating and clarifying the 
previous orders.
    Because the actions and policies of the Government of Iran 
continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United 
States, the national emergency declared on March 15, 1995, must 
continue in effect beyond March 15, 2003. 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 Iran. Because the emergency declared 
by Executive Order 12957 constitutes an emergency separate from 
that declared on November 14, 1979, by Executive Order 12170, 
this renewal is distinct from the emergency renewal of November 
2002. This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
and transmitted to the Congress.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, March 12, 2003.
