CONTINUATION OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY
WITH RESPECT TO HAITI






MESSAGE

FROM


THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES

TRANSMITTING

NOTIFICATION THAT THE HAITIAN EMERGENCY IS TO CONTINUE
IN EFFECT BEYOND OCTOBER 4, 1994, PURSUANT TO 50 U.S.C.
1622(d)


SEPTEMBER 30, 1994.-Message and accompanying papers referred to the
Committee on Foreign Affairs and ordered to be printed


U.S. GOVERNMENT PRINTING OFFICE
79-011 WASHINGTON : 1994












To the Congress of the United States:
Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C.
1622(d)) provides for the automatic termination of a national emer-
gency unless, prior to the anniversary date of its declaration, the
President publishes in the Federal Register and transmits to the
Congress a notice stating that the emergency is to continue in ef-
fect beyond the anniversary date. In accordance with this provision,
I have sent the enclosed notice, stating that the Haitian emergency
is to continue in effect beyond October 4, 1994, to the Federal Reg-
ister for publication.
Resolution of the crisis between the United States and Haiti is
in sight as a result of the September 18 agreement reached in Port-
au-Prince by the delegation led by former President Carter. Pursu-
ant to that agreement I have announced that all unilateral United
States sanctions against Haiti will be suspended with the exception
of the blocking of the assets of any persons subject to the blocking
provisions of Executive Orders Nos. 12775, 12779, 12853, 12872, or
12914 and Haitian citizens who are members of the immediate
family of any such person as identified by the Secretary of the
Treasury.
At the same time, the United Nations Security Council, with our
support, has decided that the sanctions established in Resolutions
841 and 917 should remain in force, consistent with the provisions
of Resolutions 917 and 940, until the military leaders in Haiti re-
linquish power and President Aristide returns to Haiti. That may
well not occur before October 4, 1994. Therefore, I have determined
that it is necessary to retain the authority to apply economic sanc-
tions to ensure the restoration and security of the democratically
elected Government of Haiti.
While the U.N. Security Council sanctions remain in force and in
order to enable the multinational forces to carry out their mission
and to promote the betterment of the Haitian people in the interval
until President Aristide's return, I have directed that steps be
taken in accordance with Resolutions 917 and 940 to permit sup-
plies and services to flow to Haiti to restore health care, water and
electrical services, to provide construction materials for humani-
tarian programs, and to allow the shipment of communications, ag-
ricultural, and educational materials. This will allow the Haitian
people to begin the process of reconciliation and rebuilding without
delay.

NOTICE


CONTINUATION OF EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO HAITI
On October 4, 1991, by Executive Order No. 12775, President
Bush declared a national emergency to deal with the unusual and
extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign policy, and
economy of the United States posed by the actions and policies of
the de facto regime in Haiti, blocking all property and interests in
property of the de facto regime and the Government of Haiti. Presi-
dent Bush took additional measures to prohibit trade and other
transactions with Haiti by Executive Order No. 12779 of October
28, 1991, and to the same end I issued Executive Orders No. 12853
of June 30, 1993, No. 12872 of October 18, 1993, No. 12914 of May
7, 1994, No. 12917 of May 21, 1994, No. 12920 of June 10, 1994,
and No. 12922 of June 21, 1994.
Because the de facto regime in Haiti has not yet fulfilled its com-
mitments under the Governors Island Agreement of July 3, 1993,
by relinquishing power, and therefore continues to obstruct the res-
toration of democracy in Haiti, the national emergency declared on
October 4, 1991, and the measures adopted pursuant thereto to
deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond October
4, 1994. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the Na-
tional Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing the na-
tional emergency with respect to Haiti. This notice shall be pub-
lished in the Federal Register and transmitted to the Congress.
WILLIAM J. CLINTON.
THE WHITE HOUSE, September 30, 1994.
