                Notice of March 12, 2013

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Iran

                On March 15, 1995, the President issued Executive Order 
                12957, which declared a national emergency with respect 
                to Iran and, pursuant to the International Emergency 
                Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706), took related 
                steps 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 the 
                previous orders. I 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, 
                and Executive Order 13628 of October 9, 2012.

                The actions and policies of the Government of Iran 
                continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to 
                the national security, foreign policy, and economy of 
                the United States. For this reason, the national 
                emergency declared in Executive Order 12957 must 
                continue in effect beyond March 15, 2013. 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. This renewal, 
                therefore, is distinct from the emergency renewal of 
                November 2012.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    March 12, 2013.
