                Notice of March 11, 2015

                
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 comprehensive 
                sanctions on Iran to further respond to this threat. On 
                August 19, 1997, the President issued Executive Order 
                13059, consolidating and clarifying the previous 
                orders. I took additional steps pursuant to this 
                national emergency in Executive Order 13553 of 
                September 28, 2010, Executive Order 13574 of May 23, 
                2011, Executive Order 13590 of November 20, 2011, 
                Executive Order 13599 of February 5, 2012, Executive 
                Order 13606 of April 22, 2012, Executive Order 13608 of 
                May 1, 2012, Executive Order 13622 of July 30, 2012, 
                Executive Order 13628 of October 9, 2012, and Executive 
                Order 13645 of June 3, 2013.

                While the Joint Plan of Action (JPOA) between the 
                P5+1 and Iran that went into effect on January 20, 
                2014, and was renewed by mutual consent of the 
                P5+1 and Iran on July 19, 2014, and November 24, 
                2014, marks the first time in a decade that Iran has 
                agreed to and taken specific actions that stop the 
                advance and roll back key elements of its nuclear 
                program, certain 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. For this reason, the 
                national emergency declared on March 15, 1995, must 
                continue in effect beyond March 15, 2015. 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 
                declared in Executive Order 12957. The emergency 
                declared in Executive Order 12957 constitutes an 
                emergency separate from that declared on November 14, 
                1979, by Executive Order 12170. This renewal, 
                therefore, is distinct from the emergency renewal of 
                November 2014.
