Continuation of the National Emergency With 
                Respect to the Situation in and in Relation to Burma

                On February 10, 2021, by Executive Order 14014, I 
                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 situation in and 
                in relation to Burma.

                The situation in and in relation to Burma, and in 
                particular the February 1, 2021 coup, in which the 
                military overthrew the democratically elected civilian 
                government of Burma and unjustly arrested and detained 
                government leaders, politicians, human rights 
                defenders, journalists, and religious leaders, thereby 
                rejecting the will of the people of Burma as expressed 
                in elections held in November 2020 and undermining the 
                country's democratic transition and rule of law, 
                continues 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 February 10, 2021, must continue in effect 
                beyond February 10, 2022. 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 14014 with 
                respect to the situation in and in relation to Burma.

                This notice shall be published in the Federal Register 
                and transmitted to the Congress.

                THE WHITE HOUSE,

                    February 7, 2022.
