I took this action to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States constituted by the actions of the Government of Syria in supporting terrorism, continuing its occupation of Lebanon, pursuing weapons of mass destruction and missile programs, and undermining United States and international efforts with respect to the stabilization and reconstruction of Iraq. Because the actions and policies of the Government of Syria 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 May 11, 2004, and the measures adopted on that date to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond May 11, 2005. 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 blocking the property of certain persons and prohibiting the exportation or reexportation of certain goods to Syria.

                Notice of May 5, 2005

                
Continuation of the National Emergency Blocking 
                Property of Certain Persons and Prohibiting the Export 
                of Certain Goods to Syria

                On May 11, 2004, pursuant to my authority under the 
                International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
                1701-1706) and the Syria Accountability and Lebanese 
                Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003 (Public Law 108-
                175), I issued Executive Order 13338 in which I 
                declared a national emergency blocking the property of 
                certain persons and prohibiting the exportation or 
                reexportation of certain goods to Syria. I took this 
                action to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the national security, foreign policy, and 
                economy of the United States constituted by the actions 
                of the Government of Syria in supporting terrorism, 
                continuing its occupation of Lebanon, pursuing weapons 
                of mass destruction and missile programs, and 
                undermining United States and international efforts 
                with respect to the stabilization and reconstruction of 
                Iraq.

                Because the actions and policies of the Government of 
                Syria 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 May 11, 2004, and the measures adopted on 
                that date to deal with that emergency, must continue in 
                effect beyond May 11, 2005. 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 blocking the property of certain 
                persons and prohibiting the exportation or 
                reexportation of certain goods to Syria.

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

                    (Presidential Sig.)B

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    May 5, 2005.
