                Notice of June 24, 2009

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to North Korea

                On June 26, 2008, by Executive Order 13466, the 
                President declared a national emergency pursuant to the 
                International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
                1701-1706) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the national security and foreign policy of 
                the United States constituted by the current existence 
                and risk of the proliferation of weapons-usable fissile 
                material on the Korean Peninsula. The President also 
                found that it was necessary to maintain certain 
                restrictions with respect to North Korea that would 
                otherwise have been lifted pursuant to Proclamation 
                8271 of June 26, 2008, which terminated the exercise of 
                authorities under the Trading With the Enemy Act (50 
                U.S.C. App. 1-44) with respect to North Korea.

                Because the existence and risk of the proliferation of 
                weapons-usable fissile material on the Korean Peninsula 
                continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to 
                the national security and foreign policy of the United 
                States, the national emergency declared on June 26, 
                2008, and the measures adopted on that date to deal 
                with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond 
                June 26, 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 13466.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    June 24, 2009.
