Notice of the
Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Iran
November 8, 1988
November 14, 1979, by Executive Order No.
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. Notices of the
continuation of this national emergency have been transmitted annually by the
President to the Congress and the Federal Register, most recently on November
Because our relations with Iran have not yet returned
to normal, and the process of implementing the January
agreements with Iran is still underway, the
national emergency declared on November 14, 1979, must continue in
effect beyond November 14, 1988. 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. This shall be
published in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.
November 8, 1988.
