Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to the Actions and Policies of Certain Members 
                of the Government of Belarus and Other Persons To 
                Undermine Democratic Processes or Institutions of 
                Belarus

                On June 16, 2006, by Executive Order 13405, the 
                President declared a national emergency 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 and 
                policies of certain members of the Government of 
                Belarus and other persons to undermine Belarus's 
                democratic processes or institutions, manifested in the 
                fundamentally undemocratic March 2006 elections; to 
                commit human rights abuses related to political 
                repression, including detentions and disappearances; 
                and to engage in public corruption, including by 
                diverting or misusing Belarusian public assets or by 
                misusing public authority.

                The actions and policies of certain members of the 
                Government of Belarus and other persons 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 16, 2006, and the measures adopted on 
                that date to deal with that emergency, must continue in 
                effect beyond June 16, 2018. 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 declared in Executive Order 13405.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register
