  October 31, 2019.--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
         Committee on Foreign Affairs and ordered to be printed
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 Sudan declared in 
Executive Order 13067 of November 3, 1997, is to continue in 
effect beyond November 3, 2019.
    Despite recent positive developments, the crisis 
constituted by the actions and policies of the Government of 
Sudan that led to the declaration of a national emergency in 
Executive Order 13067; the expansion of that emergency in 
Executive Order 13400 of April 26, 2006; and with respect to 
which additional steps were taken in Executive Order 13412 of 
October 13, 2006, Executive Order 13761 of January 13, 2017, 
and Executive Order 13804 of July 11, 2017, has not been 
resolved. These actions and policies 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 13067, as expanded by 
Executive Order 13400, with respect to Sudan.

                                                   Donald J. Trump.

                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


      Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to Sudan

    On November 3, 1997, by Executive Order 13067, the 
President declared a national emergency with respect to Sudan 
pursuant to the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (50 
U.S.C. 1701-1706) and took related steps to deal with the 
unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and 
foreign policy of the United States posed by the actions and 
policies of the Government of Sudan. On April 26, 2006, by 
Executive Order 13400, the President determined that the 
conflict in Sudan's Darfur region posed an unusual and 
extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign 
policy of the United States, expanded the scope of the national 
emergency declared in Executive Order 13067, and ordered the 
blocking of property of certain persons connected to the Darfur 
region. On October 13, 2006, by Executive Order 13412, the 
President took additional steps with respect to the national 
emergency declared in Executive Order 13067 and expanded in 
Executive Order 13400. In Executive Order 13412, the President 
also took steps to implement the Darfur Peace and 
Accountability Act of 2006 (Public Law 109-344).
    On January 13, 2017, by Executive Order 13761, the 
President found that positive efforts by the Government of 
Sudan between July 2016 and January 2017 improved certain 
conditions that Executive Orders 13067 and 13412 were intended 
to address. Given these developments, and in order to encourage 
the Government of Sudan to sustain and enhance these efforts, 
section 1 of Executive Order 13761 provided that sections 1 and 
2 of Executive Order 13067 and the entirety of Executive Order 
13412 would be revoked as of July 12, 2017, provided that the 
criteria in section 12(b) of Executive Order 13761 had been 
met.
    On July 11, 2017, by Executive Order 13804, I amended 
Executive Order 13761, extending until October 12, 2017, the 
effective date in section 1 of Executive Order 13761. On 
October 12, 2017, pursuant to Executive Order 13761, as amended 
by Executive Order 13804, sections 1 and 2 of Executive Order 
13067 and the entirety of Executive Order 13412 were revoked.
    Despite recent positive developments, the crisis 
constituted by the actions and policies of the Government of 
Sudan that led to the declaration of a national emergency in 
Executive Order 13067 of November 3, 1997; the expansion of 
that emergency in Executive Order 13400 of April 26, 2006; and 
with respect to which additional steps were taken in Executive 
Order 13412 of October 13, 2006, Executive Order 13761 of 
January 13, 2017, and Executive Order 13804 of July 11, 2017, 
has not been resolved. These actions and policies continue to 
pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
security and foreign policy of the United States. I have, 
therefore, determined that it is necessary to continue the 
national emergency declared in Executive Order 13067, as 
expanded by Executive Order 13400, with respect to Sudan.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                   Donald J. Trump.
