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 the situation in or 
in relation to the Democratic Republic of the Congo declared in 
Executive Order 13413 of October 27, 2006, is to continue in 
effect beyond October 27, 2021.
    The situation in or in relation to the Democratic Republic 
of the Congo, which has been marked by widespread violence and 
atrocities that continue to threaten regional stability, 
continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
foreign policy of the United States. Therefore, I have 
determined that it is necessary to continue the national 
emergency declared in Executive Order 13413 with respect to the 
situation in or in relation to the Democratic Republic of the 
Congo.

                                               Joseph R. Biden, Jr.
    The White House, October 25, 2021.

                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


 Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to the Democratic 
                         Republic of the Congo

    On October 27, 2006, by Executive Order 13413, 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 
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 that continue to threaten regional stability. The 
President took additional steps to address this national 
emergency in Executive Order 13671 of July 8, 2014.
    The situation in or in relation to the Democratic Republic 
of the Congo continues to pose an unusual and 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, must continue in effect beyond October 27, 
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 with respect to the situation 
in or in relation to the Democratic Republic of the Congo 
declared in Executive Order 13413, as amended by Executive 
Order 13671.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                               Joseph R. Biden, Jr.
    The White House, October 25, 2021.
