Notice: Continuation of Iran Emergency (11/9/00)
                              THE WHITE HOUSE

                       Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release                            November 9, 2000


                               - - - - - - -


     On November 14, 1979, by Executive Order 12170, the President declared
a national emergency to deal with the threat to the national security,
foreign policy, and economy of the United States constituted by the
situation in Iran.  Since that time, notices of the continuation of this
national emergency have been transmitted annually by the President to the
Congress and published in the Federal Register.  The most recent notice
appeared in the Federal Register on November 5, 1999.  Because our
relations with Iran have not yet returned to normal, and the process of
implementing the January 19, 1981, agreements with Iran is still underway,
the national emergency declared on November 14, 1979, must continue in
effect beyond November 14, 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 with respect to Iran for 1 year.  This notice shall
be published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.

                                   WILLIAM J. CLINTON

    November 9, 2000.
