                Notice of March 3, 2022

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Iran

                On March 15, 1995, by Executive Order 12957, the 
                President declared a national emergency 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 on Iran to further respond 
                to this threat. On August 19, 1997, the President 
                issued Executive Order 13059, consolidating and 
                clarifying those previous orders. The President 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; Executive Order 13645 of June 3, 2013; 
                Executive Order 13716 of January 16, 2016, which 
                revoked Executive Orders 13574, 13590, 13622, 13645, 
                and provisions of Executive Order 13628; Executive 
                Order 13846 of August 6, 2018, which revoked Executive 
                Orders 13716 and 13628; Executive Order 13871 of May 8, 
                2019; Executive Order 13876 of June 24, 2019; Executive 
                Order 13902 of January 10, 2020; and Executive Order 
                13949 of September 21, 2020.

                The actions and policies of the Government of Iran--
                including its proliferation and development of missiles 
                and other asymmetric and conventional weapons 
                capabilities, its network and campaign of regional 
                aggression, its support for terrorist groups, and the 
                malign activities of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard 
                Corps and its surrogates--continue to pose an unusual 
                and extraordinary threat to the national security, 
                foreign policy, and economy of the United States.

                For these reasons, the national emergency declared on 
                March 15, 1995, must continue in effect beyond March 
                15, 2022. 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 by Executive Order 12957 constitutes 
                an emergency separate from that declared on November 
                14, 1979, by Executive Order 12170, in connection with 
                the hostage crisis. This renewal, therefore, is 
                distinct from the emergency renewal of November 9, 
                2021.
