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 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 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, must continue in effect 
                beyond June 16, 2021. Therefore, in accordance with

                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 
                and transmitted to the Congress.
