                Notice of May 7, 2009

                
Continuation of the National Emergency with 
                Respect to the Actions of the Government of Syria

                On May 11, 2004, pursuant to his authority under the 
                International Emergency Economic Powers Act, 50 U.S.C. 
                1701-1706, and the Syria Accountability and Lebanese 
                Sovereignty Restoration Act of 2003, Public Law 108-
                175, the President issued Executive Order 13338, in 
                which he declared a national emergency with respect to 
                the actions of the Government of Syria. To deal with 
                this national emergency, Executive Order 13338 
                authorized the blocking of property of certain persons 
                and prohibited the exportation or re-exportation of 
                certain goods to Syria. On April 25, 2006, and February 
                13, 2008, the President issued Executive Order 13399 
                and Executive Order 13460, respectively, to take 
                additional steps with respect to this national 
                emergency.

                The President took these actions to deal with the 
                unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
                security, foreign policy, and economy of the United 
                States constituted by the actions of the Government of 
                Syria in supporting terrorism, maintaining its then-
                existing occupation of Lebanon, pursuing weapons of 
                mass destruction and missile programs, and undermining 
                U.S. and international efforts with respect to the 
                stabilization and reconstruction of Iraq.

                Because the actions and policies of the Government of 
                Syria continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the national security, foreign policy, and 
                economy of the United States, the national emergency 
                declared on May 11, 2004, and the measures adopted on 
                that date, on April 25, 2006, in Executive Order 13399, 
                and on February 13, 2008, in Executive Order 13460, to 
                deal with that emergency must continue in effect beyond 
                May 11, 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 with respect to certain actions of 
                the Government of Syria.
