                Notice of March 11, 2009

                
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. 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, 2009. 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 2008. 
                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    March 11, 2009.
