                Notice of June 22, 2009

                
Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to the Western Balkans

                On June 26, 2001, by Executive Order 13219, the 
                President 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. The President 
                subsequently amended that order in Executive Order 
                13304 of May 28, 2003.

                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, 2009. 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.)

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    June 22, 2009.
