                Notice of February 22, 2013

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Cuba and of the Emergency Authority Relating 
                to the Regulation of the Anchorage and Movement of 
                Vessels

                On March 1, 1996, by Proclamation 6867, a national 
                emergency was declared to address the disturbance or 
                threatened disturbance of international relations 
                caused by the February 24, 1996, destruction by the 
                Cuban government of two unarmed U.S.-registered 
                civilian aircraft in international airspace north of 
                Cuba. On February 26, 2004, by Proclamation 7757, the 
                national emergency was extended and its scope was 
                expanded to deny monetary and material support to the 
                Cuban government. The Cuban government has not 
                demonstrated that it will refrain from the use of 
                excessive force against U.S. vessels or aircraft that 
                may engage in memorial activities or peaceful protest 
                north of Cuba. In addition, the unauthorized entry of 
                any U.S.-registered vessel into Cuban territorial 
                waters continues to be detrimental to the foreign 
                policy of the United States. Therefore, in accordance 
                with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 
                U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing the national emergency 
                with respect to Cuba and the emergency authority 
                relating to the regulation of the anchorage and 
                movement of vessels set out in Proclamation 6867 as 
                amended by Proclamation 7757.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    February 22, 2013.
