                Notice of November 12, 2019

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass 
                Destruction

                On November 14, 1994, by Executive Order 12938, the 
                President declared a national emergency with respect to 
                the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
                security, foreign policy, and economy of the United 
                States posed by the proliferation of nuclear, 
                biological, and chemical weapons (weapons of mass 
                destruction) and the means of delivering such weapons. 
                On July 28, 1998, by Executive Order 13094, the 
                President amended Executive Order 12938 to respond more 
                effectively to the worldwide threat of proliferation 
                activities related to weapons of mass destruction. On 
                June 28, 2005, by Executive Order 13382, the President, 
                among other things, further amended Executive Order 
                12938 to improve our ability to combat proliferation 
                activities related to weapons of mass destruction. The 
                proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and the 
                means of delivering them continues 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 in 
                Executive Order 12938 with respect to the proliferation 
                of weapons of mass destruction and the means of 
                delivering such weapons must continue beyond November 
                14, 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 12938, as amended by 
                Executive Orders 13094 and 13382.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,
