                                           The White House,
                                       Washington, October 6, 2021.
Hon. Nancy Pelosi,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Madam Speaker: 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 declared in 
Executive Order 13894 of October 14, 2019, with respect to the 
situation in and in relation to Syria, is to continue in effect 
beyond October 14, 2021.
    The situation in and in relation to Syria, and in 
particular the actions by the Government of Turkey to conduct a 
military offensive into northeast Syria, undermines the 
campaign to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or 
ISIS, endangers civilians, and further threatens to undermine 
the peace, security, and stability in the region, and continues 
to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
security and foreign policy of the United States. Therefore, I 
have determined that it is necessary to continue the national 
emergency declared in Executive Order 13894 with respect to the 
situation in and in relation to Syria.
            Sincerely,
                                               Joseph R. Biden, Jr.

                                 Notice

                              ----------                              

 
Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to the 
 Situation in and in Relation to Syria

    On October 14, 2019, by Executive Order 13894, the 
President declared a national emergency pursuant to the 
International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et 
seq.) to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security and foreign policy of the United States 
constituted by the situation in and in relation to Syria.
    The situation in and in relation to Syria, and in 
particular the actions by the Government of Turkey to conduct a 
military offensive into northeast Syria, undermines the 
campaign to defeat the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, or 
ISIS, endangers civilians, and further threatens to undermine 
the peace, security, and stability in the region, and continues 
to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
security and foreign policy of the United States. For this 
reason, the national emergency declared in Executive Order 
13894 of October 14, 2019, must continue in effect beyond 
October 14, 2021. 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 declared in 
Executive Order 13894 with respect to the situation in and in 
relation to Syria.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                               Joseph R. Biden, Jr.
    The White House, October 6, 2021.
