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, 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 
                situation in or in relation to C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire and 
                ordered related measures blocking the property of 
                certain persons contributing to the conflict in 
                C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire. 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, has 
                resulted in the massacre of large numbers of civilians, 
                widespread human rights abuses, significant political 
                violence and unrest, and fatal attacks against 
                international peacekeeping forces. 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, 2010. 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.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
