                Notice of April 4, 2013

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Somalia

                On April 12, 2010, by Executive Order 13536, I declared 
                a national emergency 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 deterioration of the security 
                situation and the persistence of violence in Somalia, 
                acts of piracy and armed robbery at sea off the coast 
                of Somalia, which have repeatedly been the subject of 
                United Nations Security Council resolutions, and 
                violations of the arms embargo imposed by the United 
                Nations Security Council.

                On July 20, 2012, I issued Executive Order 13620 to 
                take additional steps to deal with the national 
                emergency declared in Executive Order 13536 in view of 
                United Nations Security Council Resolution 2036 of 
                February 22, 2012, and Resolution 2002 of July 29, 
                2011, and to address: exports of charcoal from Somalia, 
                which generate significant revenue for al-Shabaab; the 
                misappropriation of Somali public assets; and certain 
                acts of violence committed against civilians in 
                Somalia, all of which contribute to the deterioration 
                of the security situation and the persistence of 
                violence in Somalia.

                The situation with respect to Somalia 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 on April 
                12, 2010, and the measures adopted on that date and on 
                July 20, 2012, to deal with that emergency, must 
                continue in effect beyond April 12, 2013. 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 13536.
