 NOTIFICATION THAT THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO SUDAN IS TO 
   CONTINUE IN EFFECT BEYOND NOVEMBER 3, 2009, PURSUANT TO 50 U.S.C.

  October 27, 2009.--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 to the Federal 
Register for publication the enclosed notice stating that the 
Sudan emergency is to continue in effect beyond November 3, 
2009.
    The crisis constituted by the actions and policies of the 
Government of Sudan that led to the declaration of a national 
emergency in Executive Order 13067 of November 3, 1997, and the 
expansion of that emergency in Executive Order 13400 of April 
26, 2006, and with respect to which additional steps were taken 
in Executive Order 13412 of October 13, 2006, has not been 
resolved. These actions and policies are hostile to U.S. 
interests and pose a continuing 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 with 
respect to Sudan and maintain in force the sanctions against 
Sudan to respond to this threat.

                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, October 27, 2009.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


      Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Sudan

    On November 3, 1997, by Executive Order 13067, the 
President declared a national emergency with respect to Sudan, 
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 and foreign policy of the 
United States constituted by the actions and policies of the 
Government of Sudan. On April 26, 2006, in Executive Order 
13400, the President determined that the conflict in Sudan's 
Darfur region posed an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security and foreign policy of the United States, 
expanded the scope of the national emergency to deal with that 
threat, and ordered the blocking of property of certain persons 
connected to the conflict. On October 13, 2006, the President 
issued Executive Order 13412 to take additional steps with 
respect to the national emergency and to implement the Darfur 
Peace and Accountability Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-344).
    Because the actions and policies of the Government of Sudan 
continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security and foreign policy of the United States, the 
national emergency declared on November 3, 1997, as expanded on 
April 26, 2006, and with respect to which additional steps were 
taken on October 13, 2006, must continue in effect beyond 
November 3, 2009. Therefore, consistent 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 
Sudan.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, October 27, 2009.
