                                           The White House,
                                     Washington, December 28, 2001.

Hon. J. Dennis Hastert,
Speaker of the House of Representatives,
Washington, DC.

    Dear Mr. Speaker: As required by section 401(c) of the 
National Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1641(c), and section 204(c) 
of the International Emergency Economic Powers Act (IEEPA), 50 
U.S.C. 1703(c), I transmit herewith a 6-month report on the 
national emergency with respect to the Western Balkans that was 
declared in Executive Order 13219 of June 26, 2001.

            Sincerely,
                                                    George W. Bush.

 President's Periodic Report on the National Emergency With Respect to 
                          the Western Balkans

    I hereby report to the Congress on developments over the 
course of the past 6 months concerning the national emergency 
with respect to the Western Balkans that was declared in 
Executive Order 13219 of June 26, 2001, in response to the 
actions of persons engaged in, or assisting, sponsoring, or 
supporting, (i) extremist violence in the former Yugoslav 
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, in Kosovo, that threaten the peace in or 
diminish the security and stability of those areas and the 
wider region, or undermine the authority, efforts, and 
objectives of the United Nations, the North Atlantic Treaty 
Organization, and other international organizations and 
entities, including United States military forces and 
Government officials. This report is submitted pursuant to 
section 204(c) of the International Emergency Economic Powers 
Act, 50 U.S.C. 1703(c), and section 401(c) of the National 
Emergencies Act, 50 U.S.C. 1641(c).
    1. Since the issuance of Executive Order 13219, the 
Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control 
(OFAC) has administered the Western Balkans sanctions. OFAC is 
disseminating details of this program to the financial, 
securities, and international trade communities by both 
electronic and conventional media. On November 28, 2001, OFAC 
designated two additional organizations, the Albanian National 
Army and the National Committee for the Liberation and 
Protection of Albanian Lands, as subject to the prohibitions 
applicable under the Executive Order. A Federal Register notice 
announcing corresponding amendments to Appendix A to 31 C.F.R. 
chapter V will be published in the near future. In addition, 
OFAC is currently promulgating regulations to implement 
Executive Order 13219.
    In the 6-month period since June 27, 2001, OFAC has issued 
no specific licenses authorizing transactions otherwise 
prohibited by Executive Order, and has neither assessed nor 
collected any civil monetary penalty for a violation of the 
prohibitions contained in the Executive Order.
    2. The expenses incurred by the Federal Government in the 
6-month period from June 27, 2001, that are directly 
attributable to the exercise of powers and authorities 
conferred by the declaration of a national emergency with 
respect to the Western Balkans, are estimated at approximately 
$90,000, most of which represent wage and salary costs for 
Federal personnel. Personnel costs were largely centered in the 
Department of the Treasury (particularly in the Office of 
Foreign Assets Control, the Office of the Under Secretary for 
Enforcement, and the Office of the General Counsel) and the 
Department of State.
    3. The situation in the Western Balkans continues to 
present an extraordinary and unusual threat to the national 
security and foreign policy of the United States. I shall 
continue to exercise the powers at my disposal to deal with 
this threat and will report periodically to the Congress on 
significant developments.
