                Notice of May 13, 2015

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Yemen

                On May 16, 2012, by Executive Order 13611, 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 actions and policies of 
                certain members of the Government of Yemen and others 
                that threatened Yemen's peace, security, and stability, 
                including by obstructing the implementation of the 
                agreement of November 23, 2011, between the Government 
                of Yemen and those in opposition to it, which provided 
                for a peaceful transition of power that meets the 
                legitimate demands and aspirations of the Yemeni people 
                for change, and by obstructing the political process in 
                Yemen.

                The actions and policies of certain members of the 
                Government of Yemen and others in threatening Yemen's 
                peace, security, and stability continue 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 May 16, 
                2012, to deal with that threat must continue in effect 
                beyond May 16, 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 13611.

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

                 THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    May 13, 2015.
