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 with respect to the situation in or 
in relation to the Democratic Republic of the Congo declared in 
Executive Order 13413 of October 27, 2006, is to continue in 
effect beyond October 27, 2019.
    The situation in or in relation to the Democratic Republic 
of the Congo, which has been marked by widespread violence and 
atrocities that continue to threaten regional stability, 
continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
foreign policy of the United States. For this reason, I have 
determined that it is necessary to continue the national 
emergency declared in Executive Order 13413 with respect to the 
situation in or in relation to the Democratic Republic of the 
Congo.

                                                   Donald J. Trump.

                              ----------                              


 Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to the Democratic 
                         Republic of the Congo

    On October 27, 2006, by Executive Order 13413, the 
President declared a national emergency with respect to the 
situation in or in relation to the Democratic Republic of the 
Congo and pursuant to the International Emergency Economic 
Powers Act (50 U.S.C. 1701-1706), ordered related measures 
blocking the property of certain persons contributing to the 
conflict in that country. The President took this action to 
deal with the unusual and extraordinary threat to the foreign 
policy of the United States constituted by the situation in or 
in relation to the Democratic Republic of the Congo, which has 
been marked by widespread violence and atrocities and continues 
to threaten regional stability. The President took additional 
steps to address this national emergency in Executive Order 
13671 of July 8, 2014.
    The situation in or in relation to the Democratic Republic 
of the Congo continues to pose an unusual and extraordinary 
threat to the foreign policy of the United States. For this 
reason, the national emergency declared in Executive Order 
13413 of October 27, 2006, as amended by Executive Order 13671 
of July 8, 2014, and the measures adopted to deal with that 
emergency, must continue in effect beyond October 27, 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 with respect to the situation in or in 
relation to the Democratic Republic of the Congo declared in 
Executive Order 13413, as amended by Executive Order 13671.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                   Donald J. Trump.
    The White House, October 22, 2019.
