Therefore, the Secretary of State hereby determines that the designation of the aforementioned organization as a foreign terrorist organization, pursuant to Section 219 of the INA (8 U.S.C. 1189), shall be maintained.

The public meeting will take place on Wednesday, January 21, 2015, from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. EST. This is not a meeting of the full Advisory Committee. The purpose of the public meeting is to assess the current level of interest among domestic stakeholders in the Hague Trusts Convention. The Convention was signed on behalf of the United States on June 13, 1988, but the United States is not a party. Eleven countries, in whole or in part, are parties to the Convention, including most common-law jurisdictions and a small number of civil-law countries in Europe. The Office of the Assistant Legal Adviser for Private International Law is considering whether U.S. ratification of the Convention would be beneficial, as part of a more general initiative to try to address the domestic implementation of private international law treaties. For example, it would be useful to learn of the types of issues that may be confronted by those persons involved in handling trusts that have cross-border aspects, and the potential impact that the Convention would have on these issues. Time and Place: The meeting will take place from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. EST on January 21, in Room 240, South Building, State Department Annex 4, Washington, DC 20037.
