                Notice of May 7, 2020

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to Yemen

                On May 16, 2012, by Executive Order 13611, 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 actions and 
                policies of certain former members of the Government of 
                Yemen and others that threaten Yemen's peace, security, 
                and stability. These actions include obstructing the 
                political process in Yemen and blocking 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.

                The actions and policies of certain former 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, 2020. 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 7, 2020.
