Hon. Nancy Pelosi,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.
    Dear Madam 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 
before 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 with 
respect to the stabilization of Iraq that was declared in 
Executive Order 13303 of May 22, 2003, is to continue in effect 
beyond May 22, 2020.
    Obstacles to the orderly reconstruction of Iraq, the 
restoration and maintenance of peace and security in the 
country, and the development of political, administrative, and 
economic institutions in Iraq continue to pose an unusual and 
extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign 
policy of the United States. Therefore, I have determined that 
it is necessary to continue the national emergency declared in 
Executive Order 13303 with respect to the stabilization of 
Iraq.
            Sincerely,

                                                   Donald J. Trump.

                              ----------                              


      Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to the 
                         Stabilization of Iraq

    On May 22, 2003, by Executive Order 13303, the President 
declared a national emergency pursuant to the International 
Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701 et seq.) to deal 
with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
security and foreign policy of the United States posed by 
obstacles to the orderly reconstruction of Iraq, the 
restoration and maintenance of peace and security in the 
country, and the development of political, administrative, and 
economic institutions in Iraq.
    The obstacles to the orderly reconstruction of Iraq, the 
restoration and maintenance of peace and security in the 
country, and the development of political, administrative, and 
economic institutions in Iraq 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 in Executive Order 13303, as modified in 
scope and relied upon for additional steps taken in Executive 
Order 13315 of August 28, 2003, Executive Order 13350 of July 
29, 2004, Executive Order 13364 of November 29, 2004, Executive 
Order 13438 of July 17, 2007, and Executive Order 13668 of May 
27, 2014, must continue in effect beyond May 22, 2020. 
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 with respect to the stabilization of 
Iraq declared in Executive Order 13303.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.
                                                   Donald J. Trump.
    The White House, May 20, 2020.
