                Notice of October 20, 2009

                
Continuation of the National Emergency with 
                Respect to the Situation in or in Relation to the 
                Democratic Republic of the Congo

                On October 27, 2006, by Executive Order 13413, the 
                President declared a national emergency with respect to 
                the situation in or in relation to the Democratic 
                Republic of the Congo and, pursuant to the 
                International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 
                1701-1706), ordered related measures blocking the 
                property of certain persons contributing to the 
                conflict in that country. The President took this 
                action to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
                threat to the foreign policy of the United States 
                constituted by the situation in or in relation to the 
                Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has been marked 
                by widespread violence and atrocities that continue to 
                threaten regional stability.

                Because this situation continues to pose an unusual and 
                extraordinary threat to the foreign policy of the 
                United States, the national emergency declared on 
                October 27, 2006, and the measures adopted on that date 
                to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect 
                beyond October 27, 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 13413.

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

                THE WHITE HOUSE,
