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 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 declared with respect to the 
situation in Mali in Executive Order 13882 of July 26, 2019, is 
to continue in effect beyond July 26, 2020.
    The situation in Mali, including repeated violations of 
ceasefire arrangements made pursuant to the 2015 Agreement on 
Peace and Reconciliation in Mali; the expansion of terrorist 
activities into southern and central Mali; the intensification 
of drug trafficking and trafficking in persons, human rights 
abuses, and hostage-
taking; and the intensification of attacks against civilians, 
the 
Malian defense and security forces, the United Nations 
Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali 
(MINUSMA), and international security presences, continues 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 13882 with respect to the 
situation in Mali.

                                                   Donald J. Trump.

                                  Notice

                                ----------                              


                Continuation of the National Emergency 
                          With Respect to Mali

    On July 26, 2019, by Executive Order 13882, 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 situation in Mali.
    The situation in Mali, including repeated violations of 
ceasefire arrangements made pursuant to the 2015 Agreement on 
Peace and Reconciliation in Mali; the expansion of terrorist 
activities into southern and central Mali; the intensification 
of drug trafficking and trafficking in persons, human rights 
abuses, and hostage-
taking; and the intensification of attacks against civilians, 
the 
Malian defense and security forces, the United Nations 
Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali 
(MINUSMA), and international security presences, continues 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 July 26, 2019, must 
continue in effect beyond July 26, 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 declared in Executive Order 13882 with respect to the 
situation in Mali.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                   Donald J. Trump.
