On March 1, 1996, by Proclamation 6867, a national emergency was declared toaddress the disturbance or threatened disturbance of international relations caused by theFebruary 24, 1996, destruction by the Cuban government of two unarmed U.S.-registeredcivilian aircraft in international airspace north of Cuba. On February 26, 2004, byProclamation 7757, the national emergency was extended and its scope was expanded todeny monetary and material support to the Cuban government. The Cuban governmenthas 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 ofCuba. In addition, the unauthorized entry of any U.S.-registered vessel into Cubanterritorial 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 theemergency authority relating to the regulation of the anchorage and movement of vesselsset out in Proclamation 6867 as amended by Proclamation 7757.
