[[Page 1160]] Letter to Congressional Leaders Transmitting a Report on the Emigration Policies and Trade Status of Mongolia July 1, 1998 Dear Mr. Speaker: (Dear Mr. President:) On September 4, 1996, I determined and reported to the Congress that Mongolia was ``not in violation of '' the freedom of emigration criteria of sections 402 and 409 of the Trade Act of 1974. This action allowed for the continuation of most-favored-nation status for Mongolia and certain other activities without the requirement of an annual waiver. As required by law, I am submitting an updated report to Congress concerning the emigration laws and policies of Mongolia. You will find that the report indicates continued Mongolian compliance with U.S. and international standards in the area of emigration. Sincerely, William J. Clinton Note: Identical letters were sent to Newt Gingrich, Speaker of the House of Representatives, and Albert Gore, Jr., President of the Senate. This letter was released by the Office of the Press Secretary on July 2.
