  February 6, 2007.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
         Committee on Foreign Affairs and ordered to be printed

To the Congress of the United States:
    Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 
1622(d)) provides for the automatic termination of a national 
emergency unless, prior to the anniversary date of its 
declaration, the President publishes in the Federal Register 
and transmits to the Congress a notice stating that the 
emergency is to continue in effect beyond the anniversary date. 
In accordance with this provision, I have sent the enclosed 
notice to the Federal Register for publication, stating that 
the national emergency and related measures blocking the 
property of certain persons contributing to the conflict in 
Cote d'Ivoire are to continue in effect beyond February 7, 
2007.
    The situation in or in relation to Cote d'Ivoire, which has 
been addressed by the United Nations Security Council in 
Resolution 1572 of November 15, 2004, and subsequent 
resolutions, has resulted in the massacre of large numbers of 
civilians, widespread human rights abuses, significant 
political violence and unrest, and attacks against 
international peacekeeping forces leading to fatalities. This 
situation poses a continuing unusual and extraordinary threat 
to the national security and foreign policy of the United 
States. For these reasons, I have determined that it is 
necessary to continue the national emergency and related 
measures blocking the property of certain persons contributing 
to the conflict in Cote d'Ivoire.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, February 5, 2007.
