                                           The White House,
                                         Washington, March 31, 2015
Hon. John Boehner,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Mr. Speaker: Section 202(d) of the National 
Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)) provides for the automatic 
termination of a national emergency unless, within 90 days 
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 13664 of April 3, 2014, with respect to South 
Sudan is to continue in effect beyond April 3, 2015.
    The situation in and in relation to South Sudan, which has 
been marked by activities that threaten the peace, security, or 
stability of South Sudan and the surrounding region, including 
widespread violence and atrocities, human rights abuses, 
recruitment and use of child soldiers, attacks on peacekeepers, 
and obstruction of humanitarian operations, continues to pose 
an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security 
and foreign policy of the United States. For this reason, I 
have determined that it is necessary to continue the national 
emergency declared in Executive Order 13664 with respect to 
South Sudan.
            Sincerely,
                                                      Barack Obama.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


   Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to South Sudan

    On April 3, 2014, by Executive Order 13664, I declared a 
national emergency to deal with the unusual and extraordinary 
threat to the national security and foreign policy of the 
United States constituted by the situation in and in relation 
to South Sudan, which has been marked by activities that 
threaten the peace, security, or stability of South Sudan and 
the surrounding region, including widespread violence and 
atrocities, human rights abuses, recruitment and use of child 
soldiers, attacks on peacekeepers, and obstruction of 
humanitarian operations.
    The situation in and in relation to South Sudan 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 3, 2014, to 
deal with that threat must continue in effect beyond April 3, 
2015. 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 
13664.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                      Barack Obama.
    The White House, March 31, 2015.
