                Notice of October 21, 2015

                
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 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 Executive Order 
                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 Executive Order 13413 of October 27, 2006, 
                as amended by Executive Order 13671 of July 8, 2014, 
                and the measures adopted to deal with that emergency, 
                must continue in effect beyond October 27, 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 the situation in or in relation to the 
                Democratic Republic of the Congo declared in Executive 
                Order 13413, as amended by Executive Order 13671.

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

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    October 21, 2015.
