                Notice of February 4, 2015

                
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.

                The Government of C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire and its people 
                continue to make significant progress in promotion of 
                democratic, social, and economic development. The 
                United States also supports the advancement of 
                impartial justice in C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire as well as the 
                Government of C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire's efforts to prepare 
                for a peaceful, fair, and transparent presidential 
                election in 2015, which will be an important milestone 
                in C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire's progress. The United States is 
                committed to helping C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire strengthen its 
                democracy, and we look forward to working with the 
                Government and people of C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire to ensure 
                continued progress and lasting peace for all Ivorians. 
                We urge all sides to work for the benefit of the 
                country as a whole by rejecting violence and 
                participating in the electoral process.

                While the Government of C[ocirc]te d'Ivoire and its 
                people continue to make progress toward peace and 
                prosperity, 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. For this reason, 
                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, 
                2015. 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.
