Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to South Sudan

                On April 3, 2014, by Executive Order 13664, I declared 
                a national emergency to deal with the unusual and 
                extraordinary threat to the national security and 
                foreign policy of the United States constituted by the 
                situation in and in relation to South Sudan, which has 
                been marked by activities that threaten the peace, 
                security, or stability of South Sudan and the 
                surrounding region, including widespread violence and 
                atrocities, human rights abuses, recruitment and use of 
                child soldiers, attacks on peacekeepers, and 
                obstruction of humanitarian operations.

                The situation in and in relation to South Sudan 
                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 3, 2014, to deal with that threat 
                must continue in effect beyond April 3, 2015. 
                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 13664.
