On February 26, 2004, by Proclamation 7757, the national emergency was expanded to deny monetary and material support to the Cuban government. On February 24, 2016, by Proclamation 9398, and on February 22, 2018, by Proclamation 9699, the national emergency was further modified based on continued disturbances or threatened disturbances of the international relations of the United States related to Cuba. The Cuban government has not demonstrated that it will refrain from the use of excessive force against United States vessels or aircraft that may engage in memorial activities or peaceful protest north of Cuba. Further, the unauthorized entry of any United States-registered vessel into Cuban territorial waters continues to be detrimental to the foreign policy of the United States because such entry could facilitate a mass migration from Cuba. It continues to be United States policy that a mass migration from Cuba would endanger United States national security by posing a disturbance or threatened disturbance of the international relations of the United States. jspears on DSK121TN23PROD with FR PREZDOC4 Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing the national emergency with respect to Cuba and the emergency authority relating to the regulation of the anchorage and movement of vessels set out in Proclamation 6867, as amended by Proclamation 7757, Proclamation 9398, and Proclamation 9699.

                Notice of February 23, 2022

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Cuba and of the Emergency Authority Relating 
                to the Regulation of the Anchorage and Movement of 
                Vessels

                On March 1, 1996, by Proclamation 6867, a national 
                emergency was declared to address the disturbance or 
                threatened disturbance of international relations 
                caused by the February 24, 1996, destruction by the 
                Cuban government of two unarmed, United States-
                registered civilian aircraft in international airspace 
                north of Cuba. On February 26, 2004, by Proclamation 
                7757, the national emergency was expanded to deny 
                monetary and material support to the Cuban government. 
                On February 24, 2016, by Proclamation 9398, and on 
                February 22, 2018, by Proclamation 9699, the national 
                emergency was further modified based on continued 
                disturbances or threatened disturbances of the 
                international relations of the United States related to 
                Cuba. The Cuban government has not demonstrated that it 
                will refrain from the use of excessive force against 
                United States vessels or aircraft that may engage in 
                memorial activities or peaceful protest north of Cuba.

                Further, the unauthorized entry of any United States-
                registered vessel into Cuban territorial waters 
                continues to be detrimental to the foreign policy of 
                the United States because such entry could facilitate a 
                mass migration from Cuba. It continues to be United 
                States policy that a mass migration from Cuba would 
                endanger United States national security by posing a 
                disturbance or threatened disturbance of the 
                international relations of the United States.

                Therefore, in accordance with section 202(d) of the 
                National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am 
                continuing the national emergency with respect to Cuba 
                and the emergency authority relating to the regulation 
                of the anchorage and movement of vessels set out in 
                Proclamation 6867, as amended by Proclamation 7757, 
                Proclamation 9398, and Proclamation 9699.
