Pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA) (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), I hereby report that I have issued an Executive Order with respect to the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and means of delivering them that takes additional steps with respect to the national emergency described and declared in Executive Order 12938 of November 14, 1994, as amended by and relied on for additional steps in subsequent Executive Orders.

The Executive Order I have issued directs the Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, to take certain actions when the President, or the Secretary of State pursuant to authority delegated by the President and in accordance with the terms of such delegation, has pursuant to section 307(b)(1) of the Chemical and Biological Weapons Control and Warfare Elimination Act of 1991 (CBW Act), Public Law 102-182 (50 U.S.C.
