                Respect to South Sudan

                On April 3, 2014, by Executive Order 13664, 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 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, 2016. 
                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.
