                Notice of June 22, 2015

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to North Korea

                On June 26, 2008, by Executive Order 13466, the 
                President declared a national emergency with respect to 
                North Korea 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 existence and risk of proliferation 
                of weapons-usable fissile material on the Korean 
                Peninsula. The President also found that it was 
                necessary to maintain certain restrictions with respect 
                to North Korea that would otherwise have been lifted 
                pursuant to Proclamation 8271 of June 26, 2008, which 
                terminated the exercise of authorities under the 
                Trading With the Enemy Act (50 U.S.C. App. 1-44) with 
                respect to North Korea.

                On August 30, 2010, I signed Executive Order 13551, 
                which expanded the scope of the national emergency 
                declared in Executive Order 13466 to deal with the 
                unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
                security, foreign policy, and economy of the United 
                States posed by the continued actions and policies of 
                the Government of North Korea, manifested by its 
                unprovoked attack that resulted in the sinking of the 
                Republic of Korea Navy ship Cheonan and the deaths of 
                46 sailors in March 2010; its announced test of a 
                nuclear device and its missile launches in 2009; its 
                actions in violation of United Nations Security Council 
                Resolutions 1718 and 1874, including the procurement of 
                luxury goods; and its illicit and deceptive activities 
                in international markets through which it obtains 
                financial and other support, including money 
                laundering, the counterfeiting of goods and currency, 
                bulk cash smuggling, and narcotics trafficking, which 
                destabilize the Korean Peninsula and imperil U.S. Armed 
                Forces, allies, and trading partners in the region.

                On April 18, 2011, I signed Executive Order 13570 to 
                take additional steps to address the national emergency 
                declared in Executive Order 13466 and expanded in 
                Executive Order 13551 that will ensure the 
                implementation of the import restrictions contained in 
                United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1718 and 
                1874 and complement the import restrictions provided 
                for in the Arms Export Control Act (22 U.S.C. 2751 et 
                seq.).

                On January 2, 2015, I signed Executive Order 13687 to 
                take further steps with respect to the national 
                emergency declared in Executive Order 13466, as 
                expanded in Executive Order 13551, and addressed 
                further in Executive Order 13570, to address the threat 
                to the national security, foreign policy, and economy 
                of the United States constituted by the provocative, 
                destabilizing, and repressive actions and policies of 
                the Government of North Korea, including its 
                destructive, coercive cyber-related actions during 
                November and December 2014, actions in violation of 
                United Nations Security Council Resolutions 1718, 1874, 
                2087, and 2094, and commission of serious human rights 
                abuses.

                The existence and risk of proliferation of weapons-
                usable fissile material on the Korean Peninsula and the 
                actions and policies of the Government of North Korea 
                continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to 
                the national security, foreign policy, and economy of 
                the United States. For this reason, the national 
                emergency declared in Executive Order 13466, expanded 
                in scope in Executive Order 13551, addressed further in 
                Executive

                Order 13570, and further expanded in scope in Executive 
                Order 13687, and the measures taken to deal with that 
                national emergency, must continue in effect beyond June 
                26, 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 with 
                respect to North Korea declared in Executive Order 
                13466.

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