   NOTIFICATION THAT THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY WITH RESPECT TO SOMALIA 
ORIGINALLY DECLARED ON APRIL 12, 2010, BY EXECUTIVE ORDER 13536, IS TO

    April 8, 2011.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
         Committee on Foreign Affairs and ordered to be printed
To the Congress of the United States:
    Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 
1622(d)) provides for the automatic termination of a national 
emergency unless, 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 Order 13536 of April 
12, 2010, is to continue in effect beyond April 12, 2011.
    The deterioration of the security situation and the 
persistence of violence in Somalia, and 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 Somalia arms embargo imposed 
by the United Nations Security Council, continue to pose an 
unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and 
foreign policy of the United States. For these reasons, I have 
determined that it is necessary to continue the national 
emergency with respect to Somalia and related measures blocking 
the property of certain persons contributing to the conflict in 
Somalia.

                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, April 7, 2011.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


     Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Somalia

    On April 12, 2010, by Executive Order 13536, 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 
deterioration of the security situation and the persistence of 
violence in Somalia, and 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 Somalia arms embargo imposed by the United 
Nations Security Council.
    Because 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, the national 
emergency declared on April 12, 2010, and the measures adopted 
on that date to deal with that emergency, must continue in 
effect beyond April 12, 2011. 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.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, April 7, 2011.
