CONTINUATION OF THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO SOMALIA

On April12, 2010, by Executive Order13536, the President declared a national emergency to deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the UnitedStates 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 UnitedNations Security Council resolutions, and violations of the arms embargo imposed by the United Nations Security Council.

On July20, 2012, the President issued Executive Order13620 to take additional steps to deal with the national emergency declared in Executive Order13536 in view of UnitedNations Security Council Resolution2036 of February22, 2012, and Resolution2002 of July29, 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 UnitedStates. For this reason, the national emergency declared on April12, 2010, and the measures adopted on that date and on July20, 2012, to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond April12, 2017. Therefore, in accordance with section202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50U.S.C. 1622(d)), I am continuing for 1year the national emergency declared in Executive Order13536.

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

DONALD J. TRUMP

THE WHITE HOUSE,
April 6, 2017.
