                Notice of October 21, 2014

                
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 (E.O.) 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. I took additional steps 
                pursuant to this national emergency in E.O. 13671 of 
                July 8, 2014.

                This situation continues to pose an unusual and 
                extraordinary threat to the foreign policy of the 
                United States. For this reason, the national emergency 
                declared in E.O. 13413 of October 27, 2006, as amended 
                by E.O. 13671 of July 8, 2014, and the measures adopted 
                to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect 
                beyond October 27, 2014. 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 with respect to the situation in or 
                in relation to the Democratic Republic of the Congo 
                declared in E.O. 13413, as amended by E.O. 13671.

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

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    October 21, 2014.
