                 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,
                [[Page 12556]]

                 and transmitted to the Congress.

                 March 3, 2022.
