Message to the Congress Regarding the Continuation of the National Emergency with Respect to Somalia

TO THE CONGRESS OF THE UNITED STATES:

Section202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50U.S.C. 1622(d)) provides for the automatic termination of a national emergency unless, within 90days prior to the anniversary date of its declaration, the President publishes in the Federal Register and transmits to the Congress a notice stating that the emergency is to continue in effect beyond the anniversary date. In accordance with this provision, I have sent to the Federal Register for publication the enclosed notice stating that the national emergency declared in Executive Order13536 of April12, 2010, with respect to Somalia is to continue in effect beyond April12, 2017.

The United States is strongly committed to Somalia's stabilization, and it is important to maintain sanctions against persons undermining its stability. For this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue the national emergency with respect to Somalia and to maintain in force the sanctions to respond to this threat.
