For Immediate Release June 30, 1993

I am enclosing a copy of the Executive order that I have issued. The order was effective immediately.

The Secretary of the Treasury, in consultation with the Secretary of State, is authorized to issue regulations implementing these prohibitions.

United Nations Security Council Resolution 841, unanimously adopted on June 16, 1993, calls on all States to adopt certain measures which are included within those outlined above. These measures are called for in recognition of the urgent need for an early, comprehensive, and peaceful settlement of the crisis in Haiti and in light of the failure of parties in Haiti to act constructively to take steps necessary to begin the restoration of democracy.

The measures we are taking respond to the Security Council's call. They demonstrate our commitment to remain at the forefront of the international community's efforts to back up with sanctions the negotiations process being sponsored by the United Nations and the Organization of American States. These steps also demonstrate unflinching support through our foreign policy of the return of democracy to Haiti.
