Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect To the Situation In or In Relation To 
                C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire

                 On February 7, 2006, by Executive Order 13396, the 
                President declared a national emergency and ordered 
                related measures blocking the property of certain 
                persons contributing to the conflict in C[ocirc]te 
                d'Ivoire, pursuant to the International Emergency 
                Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706). The 
                President took this action to deal with the unusual and 
                extraordinary threat to the national security and 
                foreign policy of the United States constituted by the 
                situation in or in relation to C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire, 
                which has been addressed by the United Nations Security 
                Council in Resolution 1572 of November 15, 2004, and 
                subsequent resolutions, and has resulted in the 
                massacre of large numbers of civilians, widespread 
                human rights abuses, significant political violence and 
                unrest, and attacks against international peacekeeping 
                forces leading to fatalities. Because the situation in 
                or in relation to C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire continues to pose 
                an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
                security and foreign policy of the United States, the 
                national emergency declared on February 7, 2006, and 
                the measures adopted on that date to deal with that 
                emergency, must continue in effect beyond February 7, 
                2009.

                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 declared 
                in Executive Order 13396.
