                       Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release                          November 1, 2000


                               - - - - - - -


     On November 3, 1997, by Executive Order 13067, I declared a national
emergency to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national
security and foreign policy of the United States constituted by the actions
and policies of the Government of Sudan.  By Executive Order 13067, I
imposed trade sanctions on Sudan and blocked Sudanese government assets.
Because the Government of Sudan has continued its activities hostile to
United States interests, the national emergency declared on November 3,
1997, and the measures adopted on that date to deal with that emergency
must continue in effect beyond November 3, 2000.  Therefore, in accordance
with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I
am continuing the national emergency for 1 year with respect to Sudan.

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

                              WILLIAM J. CLINTON

    October 31, 2000.
