                On October 27, 2006, by Executive Order 13413, the 
                President declared a national emergency with respect to

                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 and continues to threaten 
                regional stability. The President took additional steps 
                to address this national emergency in Executive Order

                The situation in or in relation to the Democratic

                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, 2019. 
                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
