                Notice of June 8, 2021

                
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 et seq.) 
                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 former Republic of Macedonia 
                (what is now the Republic of North 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, to take additional steps with 
                respect to certain actions that obstruct implementation 
                of, among other things, the Ohrid Framework Agreement 
                of 2001 relating to Macedonia.

                The actions of persons threatening the peace and 
                international stabilization efforts in the Western 
                Balkans, including acts of extremist violence and 
                obstructionist activity, 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, must 
                continue in effect beyond June 26, 2021. 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 with respect 
                to the Western Balkans in Executive Order 13219.

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

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    June 8, 2021.
