                Notice of December 18, 2019

Continuation of the National Emergency With
                Respect to Serious Human Rights Abuse and Corruption
                On December 20, 2017, by Executive Order 13818, the
                President declared a national emergency with respect to
                serious human rights abuse and corruption around the
                world and, pursuant to the International Emergency
                Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.), took
                related steps to deal with the unusual and
                extraordinary threat to the national security, foreign
                policy, and economy of the United States.
                The prevalence and severity of human rights abuse and
                corruption that have their source, in whole or in
                substantial part, outside the United States, continue
                to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the
                national security, foreign policy, and economy of the
                United States. For this reason, the national emergency
                declared on December 20, 2017, must continue in effect
                beyond December 20, 2019. 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 13818
                with respect to serious human rights abuse and
                corruption.
                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register
                and transmitted to the Congress.


                    (Presidential Sig.)
                THE WHITE HOUSE,
                    December 18, 2019.
