   NOTIFICATION THAT THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY DECLARED WITH RESPECT TO

 September 19, 2013.--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, within 90 days 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 to the 
Federal Register for publication the enclosed notice stating 
that the national emergency with respect to persons who commit, 
threaten to commit, or support terrorism declared in Executive 
Order 13224 of September 23, 2001, is to continue in effect 
beyond September 23, 2013.
    The crisis constituted by the grave acts of terrorism and 
threats of terrorism committed by foreign terrorists, including 
the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, in New York and 
Pennsylvania and against the Pentagon, and the continuing and 
immediate threat of further attacks on United States nationals 
or the United States that led to the declaration of a national 
emergency on September 23, 2001, has not been resolved. These 
actions continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to 
the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the 
United States. For this reason, I have determined that it is 
necessary to continue the national emergency declared in 
Executive Order 13224 with respect to persons who commit, 
threaten to commit, or support terrorism.

                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, September 18, 2013.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


  Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Persons Who 
            Commit, Threaten To Commit, or Support Terrorism

    On September 23, 2001, by Executive Order 13224, the 
President declared a national emergency with respect to persons 
who commit, threaten to commit, or support terrorism, 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, foreign policy, and economy of the 
United States constituted by the grave acts of terrorism and 
threats of terrorism committed by foreign terrorists, including 
the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, in New York and 
Pennsylvania and against the Pentagon, and the continuing and 
immediate threat of further attacks against United States 
nationals or the United States.
    The actions of persons who commit, threaten to commit, or 
support terrorism continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary 
threat to the national security, foreign policy, and economy of 
the United States. For this reason, the national emergency 
declared in Executive Order 13224 of September 23, 2001, and 
the measures adopted on that date to deal with that emergency, 
must continue in effect beyond September 23, 2013. 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 persons who commit, threaten 
to commit, or support terrorism declared in Executive Order 
13224.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, September 18, 2013.
