                Termination of Emergency With Respect to the 
                Actions and Policies of Unita and Revocation of Related 
                Executive Orders

                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.), the National 
                Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1601 et seq.) (NEA), section 
                5 of the United Nations Participation Act of 1945, as 
                amended (22 U.S.C. 287c), and section 301 of title 3, 
                United States Code, and in view of United Nations 
                Security Council Resolution 1448 of December 9, 2002,

                I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the United States of 
                America, find that the situation that gave rise to the 
                declaration of a national emergency in Executive Order 
                12865 of September 26, 1993, with respect to the 
                actions and policies of the National Union for the 
                Total Independence of Angola (UNITA), and that led to 
                the steps taken in that order and in Executive Order 
                13069 of December 12, 1997, and Executive Order 13098 
                of August 18, 1998, has been significantly altered by 
                the recent and continuing steps toward peace taken by 
                the Government of Angola and UNITA. Accordingly, I 
                hereby terminate the national emergency declared in 
                Executive Order 12865, revoke Executive Orders 12865, 
                13069, and 13098, and order:

                this order, or any rights or duties that matured or 
                penalties that were incurred prior to the effective
