Biden extends US national emergencies over 9/11 terror attacks
WASHINGTON - US President Joe Biden extended multiple national emergencies with respect to the terrorist attacks on Sept 11 for another year, reported Sputnik.
"I am continuing for one year the national emergency previously declared on Sept 14, 2001, in Proclamation 7463, with respect to the terrorist attacks of Sept 11, 2001, and the continuing and immediate threat of further attacks on the United States," Biden said in one of the notices on Thursday.
He also extended the national emergency with respect to persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support terrorism for another year.
Biden said the crisis constituted by the terror attacks that led to the declaration of a national emergency has not been resolved, and continues to pose an "unusual and extraordinary threat" to US national security. - BERNAMA
