                Notice of July 27, 2016

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Lebanon

                On August 1, 2007, by Executive Order 13441, the 
                President declared a national emergency with respect to 
                Lebanon 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 actions of certain persons to 
                undermine Lebanon's legitimate and democratically 
                elected government or democratic institutions; to 
                contribute to the deliberate breakdown in the rule of 
                law in Lebanon, including through politically motivated 
                violence and intimidation; to reassert Syrian control 
                or contribute to Syrian interference in Lebanon; or to 
                infringe upon or undermine Lebanese sovereignty. Such 
                actions contribute to political and economic 
                instability in that country and the region.

                Certain ongoing activities, such as continuing arms 
                transfers to Hizballah that include increasingly 
                sophisticated weapons systems, serve to undermine 
                Lebanese sovereignty, contribute to political and 
                economic instability in Lebanon, and continue to 
                constitute an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
                national security and foreign policy of the United 
                States. For this reason, the national emergency 
                declared on August 1, 2007, and the measures adopted on 
                that date to deal with that emergency, must continue in 
                effect beyond August 1, 2016. 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 Lebanon declared in 
                Executive Order 13441.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
