                Executive Order 13067 of November 3, 1997

                
Blocking Sudanese Government Property and 
                Prohibiting Transactions With Sudan

                By the authority vested in me as President by the 
                Constitution and the laws of the United States of 
                America, including the International Emergency Economic 
                Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) (IEEPA), the 
                National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.), and 
                section 301 of title 3, United States Code;

                I, WILLIAM J. CLINTON, President of the United States 
                of America, find that the policies and actions of the 
                Government of Sudan, including continued support for 
                international terrorism; ongoing efforts to destabilize 
                neighboring governments; and the prevalence of human 
                rights violations, including slavery and the denial of 
                religious freedom, constitute an unusual and 
                extraordinary threat to the national security and 
                foreign policy of the United States, and hereby declare 
                a national emergency to deal with that threat. I hereby 
                order:

                Section 1. Except to the extent provided in section 
                203(b) of IEEPA (50 U.S.C. 1702(b)) and in regulations, 
                orders, directives, or licenses that may be issued 
                pursuant to this order, all property and interests in 
                property of the Government of Sudan that are in the 
                United States, that hereafter come within the United 
                States, or that hereafter come within the possession or 
                control of United States persons, including their 
                overseas branches, are blocked.

                Sec. 2. The following are prohibited, except to the

                information), or services from the United States or by 
                a United States person, wherever located, or requiring 
                the issuance of a license by a Federal agency, except 
                for donations of articles intended to relieve human 
                suffering, such as food, clothing, and medicine;
                    (c) the facilitation by a United States person, 
                including but not limited to brokering activities, of 
                the exportation or reexportation of goods, technology, 
                or services from Sudan to any destination, or to Sudan 
                from any location;
                    (d) the performance by any United States person of 
                any contract, including a financing contract, in
