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, 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 13611 
of May 16, 2012, with respect to Yemen is to continue in effect 
beyond May 16, 2021.
    The actions and policies of certain former members of the 
Government of Yemen and others continue to threaten Yemen's 
peace, security, and stability. These actions include 
obstructing the political process in Yemen and the 
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. For 
this reason, I have determined that it is necessary to continue 
the national emergency declared in Executive Order 13611 with 
respect to Yemen.

                              ----------                              


      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 members of the Government 
of Yemen and others that threatened 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 provide 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, 2021. 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 with respect to 
Yemen.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to Congress.

                                               Joseph R. Biden, Jr.
    The White House, May 11, 2021.
