Subsequent to the declaration of the national emergency, the actions of persons obstructing implementation of the Ohrid Framework Agreement of 2001 in Macedonia also became a pressing concern. I amended Executive Order 13219 on May 28, 2003, in Executive Order 13304 to address this concern and to take additional steps with respect to the national emergency. Because the actions of persons threatening the peace and international stabilization efforts in the Western Balkans continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the national security and foreign policy of the United States, the national emergency declared on June 26, 2001, and the measures adopted on that date and thereafter to deal with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond June 26, 2005. 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 Western Balkans.

                Notice of June 23, 2005

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to the Western Balkans

                On June 26, 2001, by Executive Order 13219, I declared 
                a national emergency with respect to the Western 
                Balkans 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 actions of persons engaged in, or 
                assisting, sponsoring, or supporting (i) extremist 
                violence in the Republic of Macedonia, and elsewhere in 
                the Western Balkans region, or (ii) acts obstructing 
                implementation of the Dayton Accords in Bosnia or 
                United Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 of June 
                10, 1999, in Kosovo. Subsequent to the declaration of 
                the national emergency, the actions of persons 
                obstructing implementation of the Ohrid Framework 
                Agreement of 2001 in Macedonia also became a pressing 
                concern. I amended Executive Order 13219 on May 28, 
                2003, in Executive Order 13304 to address this concern 
                and to take additional steps with respect to the 
                national emergency. Because the actions of persons 
                threatening the peace and international stabilization 
                efforts in the Western Balkans continue to pose an 
                unusual and extraordinary threat to the national 
                security and foreign policy of the United States, the 
                national emergency declared on June 26, 2001, and the 
                measures adopted on that date and thereafter to deal 
                with that emergency, must continue in effect beyond 
                June 26, 2005. 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 Western Balkans.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.

                    (Presidential Sig.)B

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    June 23, 2005.
