                Notice of April 8, 2015

                
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.

                Because 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, 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, 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 13536.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    April 8, 2015.
