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, relating to Kosovo. The 
                President subsequently amended that order in Executive 
                Order 13304 of May 28, 2003, to include acts 
                obstructing the implementation of the Ohrid Framework 
                Agreement relating to Macedonia.

                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. For this reason, 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, 
                2013. 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 declared in Executive 
                Order 13219.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
                
                
                    (Presidential Sig.)
