                Notice of April 4, 2018

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Somalia

                On April 12, 2010, by Executive Order 13536, the 
                President 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, the President 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, 2018. 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.
