                 Notice of July 30, 2009

                
Continuation of the National Emergency with 
                Respect to the Actions of Certain Persons to Undermine 
                the Sovereignty of Lebanon or its Democratic Processes 
                and Institutions

                On August 1, 2007, by Executive Order 13441, the 
                President declared a national emergency and ordered 
                related measures blocking the property of certain 
                persons undermining the sovereignty of Lebanon or its 
                democratic processes or institutions and certain other 
                persons, pursuant to the International Emergency 
                Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706). The 
                President determined that the actions of certain 
                persons to undermine Lebanon's legitimate and 
                democratically elected government or democratic 
                institutions; to contribute to the deliberate breakdown 
                in the rule of law in Lebanon, including through 
                politically motivated violence and intimidation; to 
                reassert Syrian control or contribute to Syrian 
                interference in Lebanon, or to infringe upon or 
                undermine Lebanese sovereignty contribute to political 
                and economic instability in that country and the region 
                and constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to 
                the national security and foreign policy of the United 
                States.

                Despite some positive developments in the past year, 
                including the establishment of diplomatic relations and 
                an exchange of ambassadors between Syria and Lebanon, 
                the actions of certain persons continue to contribute 
                to political and economic instability in Lebanon and 
                continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to 
                the national security and foreign policy of the United 
                States. Therefore, the national emergency declared on 
                August 1, 2007, and the measures adopted on that date 
                to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect 
                beyond August 1, 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 13441.

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

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    July 30, 2009.
