                Notice of July 20, 1999

Continuation of Iraqi Emergency

                On August 2, 1990, by Executive Order 12722, President 
                Bush declared a national emergency to deal with the 
                unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
                security and foreign policy of the United States 
                constituted by the actions and policies of the 
                Government of Iraq. By Executive Orders 12722 of August 
                2, 1990, and 12724 of August 9, 1990, the President 
                imposed trade sanctions on Iraq and blocked Iraqi 
                government assets. Because the Government of Iraq has 
                continued its activities hostile to United States 
                interests in the Middle East, the national emergency 
                declared on August 2, 1990, and the measures adopted on 
                August 2 and August 9, 1990, to deal with that 
                emergency must continue in effect beyond August 2, 
                1999. 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 Iraq.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.

                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    July 20, 1999.
