                Notice of September 18, 2015

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Persons Who Commit, Threaten To Commit, or 
                Support Terrorism

                On September 23, 2001, by Executive Order 13224, the 
                President declared a national emergency with respect to 
                persons who commit, threaten to commit, or support 
                terrorism, 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, foreign policy, and economy of the United 
                States constituted by the grave acts of terrorism and 
                threats of terrorism committed by foreign terrorists, 
                including the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, 
                in New York and Pennsylvania and against the Pentagon, 
                and the continuing and immediate threat of further 
                attacks against United States nationals or the United 
                States.

                The actions of persons who commit, threaten to commit, 
                or support terrorism 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 13224 of September 23, 2001, and the measures 
                adopted on that date to deal with that emergency, must 
                continue in effect beyond September 23, 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 persons who commit, threaten to commit, or 
                support terrorism declared in Executive Order 13224.

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

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    September 18, 2015.
