    June 11, 2003.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
     Committee on International Relations and ordered to be printed
To the Congress of the United States:
    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 a 6-month periodic report prepared by my 
Administration 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 that was declared in Executive Order 13159 of June 
21, 2000.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, June 10, 2003.
 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

    This report to the Congress covers developments over the 
course of the past 6 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 (HEU)) 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 204(c) of the International Emergency Economic Powers 
Act, 50 U.S.C. 1703(c), and section 401(c) of the National 
Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1641(c).
    1. There have been no amendments to the HEU Agreement 
Assets Control Regulations, 31 C.F.R. Part 540 (the 
Regulations).
    2. The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign 
Assets Control (OFAC) has issued, as of April 21, 2003, five 
licenses during the current reporting period in furtherance of 
the Order's goals of protecting the blocked assets and ensuring 
full implementation of the Regulations.\1\ 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.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    \1\ The prior report, as printed in House Document 108-9, H.R. Doc. 
No. 9, 108th Cong., 1st Sess. 3 (2003), mistakenly listed the number of 
licenses issued during that reporting period as 14, as of April 24, 
2002. The correct language is: ``The Department of the Treasury's 
Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has issued, as of October 21, 
2002, 12 licenses during the current reporting period in furtherance of 
the Order's goals of protecting the blocked assets and ensuring full 
implementation of the Regulations.''
---------------------------------------------------------------------------
    3. The expenses incurred by the Federal Government in the 
6-month period from December 21, 2002, through June 20, 2003, 
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 Russia Federation are estimated at 
approximately $10,000, 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 Office of the Under 
Secretary for Enforcement, and the Office of the General 
Counsel), the Department of State, and the Department of 
Energy.
    4. The Order provides an effective 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.
