Trump extends state of emergency with Iran

November 10, 2017

U.S. President Donald Trump notified Congress on Monday that he was extending the national emergency with Iran that has been in place since the 1979 hostage crisis, the Washington Times reported.

“Our relations with Iran have not yet normalized, and the process of implementing the agreements with Iran, dated January 19, 1981, is ongoing,” Trump wrote to Congress in the formal notice.

Previous presidents routinely extended the national emergency, which otherwise expires on the Nov. 14, anniversary of the original declaration.
