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.
