In July 1996 and on subsequent occasions, the Cuban government stated its intent to forcefully defend its sovereignty against any U.S.registered vessels or aircraft that might enter Cuban territorial waters or airspace while involved in a flotilla or peaceful protest. Since these events, the Cuban government has not demonstrated that it will refrain from the future use of reckless and excessive force against U.S. vessels or aircraft that may engage in memorial activities or peaceful protest north of Cuba. On February 26, 2004, by Proclamation 7757, the scope of the national emergency was expanded in order to deny monetary and material support to the repressive Cuban government, which had taken a series of steps to destabilize relations with the United States, including threatening to abrogate the Migration Accords with the United States and to close the United States Interests Section. Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1 year the national emergency with respect to Cuba and the emergency authority relating to the regulation of the anchorage and movement of vessels set out in Proclamation 6687, as amended and expanded by Proclamation 7757.

                Notice of January 10, 2006

                
Continuation of the National Emergency Relating 
                to Cuba and of the Emergency Authority Relating to the 
                Regulation of the Anchorage and Movement of Vessels

                On March 1, 1996, by Proclamation 6867, a national 
                emergency was declared to address the disturbance or 
                threatened disturbance of international relations 
                caused by the February 24, 1996, destruction by the 
                Cuban government of two unarmed U.S.-registered 
                civilian aircraft in international airspace north of 
                Cuba. In July 1996 and on subsequent occasions, the 
                Cuban government stated its intent to forcefully defend 
                its sovereignty against any U.S.-registered vessels or 
                aircraft that might enter Cuban territorial waters or 
                airspace while involved in a flotilla or peaceful 
                protest. Since these events, the Cuban government has 
                not demonstrated that it will refrain from the future 
                use of reckless and excessive force against U.S. 
                vessels or aircraft that may engage in memorial 
                activities or peaceful protest north of Cuba. On 
                February 26, 2004, by Proclamation 7757, the scope of 
                the national emergency was expanded in order to deny 
                monetary and material support to the repressive Cuban 
                government, which had taken a series of steps to 
                destabilize relations with the United States, including 
                threatening to abrogate the Migration Accords with the 
                United States and to close the United States Interests 
                Section.

                Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the 
                National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am 
                continuing for 1 year the national emergency with 
                respect to Cuba and the emergency authority relating to 
                the regulation of the anchorage and movement of vessels 
                set out in Proclamation 6687, as amended and expanded 
                by Proclamation 7757.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.

                    (Presidential Sig.)B
