 NOTIFICATION THAT THE NATIONAL EMERGENCY DECLARED WITH RESPECT TO THE 
WESTERN BALKANS IS TO CONTINUE IN EFFECT BEYOND JUNE 26, 2003, PURSUANT 
                          TO 50 U.S.C. 1622(d)

    June 23, 2003--Message and accompanying papers referred to the 
     Committee on International Relations and ordered to be printed
To the Congress of the United States:
    Section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 
1622(d)) provides for the automatic termination of a national 
emergency unless, prior to the anniversary date of its 
declaration, the President publishes in the Federal Register 
and transmits to the Congress a notice stating that the 
emergency is to continue in effect beyond the anniversary date. 
Consistent with this provision, I have sent the enclosed 
notice, stating that the Western Balkans emergency is to 
continue in effect beyond June 26, 2003, to the Federal 
Register for publication. The most recent notice continuing 
this emergency was published in the Federal Register on June 
25, 2002, 67 Fed. Reg. 42703.
    The crisis constituted by 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 led to the declaration of a national emergency on 
June 26, 2001, has not been resolved. Subsequence to the 
declaration of the national emergency, acts obstructing 
implementation of the Ohrid Framework Agreement of 2001 in the 
former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, have also become a 
concern. All of these actions are hostile to U.S. interests and 
pose a continuing unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security and foreign policy of the United States. For 
these reasons, I have determined that it is necessary to 
continue the national emergency declared with respect to the 
Western Balkans and maintain in force the comprehensive 
sanctions to respond to this threat.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, June 23, 2003.
                                 Notice

                              ----------                              


  Continuation of the National Emergency With Respect to the Western 
                                Balkans

    On June 26, 2001, by Executive Order 13219, I declared a 
national emergency with respect to the Western Balkans 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 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. Subsequent to the 
declaration of the national emergency, the actions of persons 
obstructing implementation of the Ohrid Framework Agreement of 
2001 in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia have also 
become a pressing concern. I amended Executive Order 13219 on 
May 28, 2003, in Executive Order 13304 to address this concern 
and to take additional steps with respect to the national 
emergency. Because the actions of persons threatening the peace 
and international stabilization efforts in the Western Balkans 
continue to pose an unusual and extraordinary threat to the 
national security and foreign policy of the United States, the 
national emergency declared on June 26, 2001, and the measures 
adopted on that date and thereafter to deal with that emergency 
must continue in effect beyond June 26, 2003. 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 with respect to the Western Balkans.
    This notice shall be published in the Federal Register and 
transmitted to the Congress.

                                                    George W. Bush.
    The White House, June 20, 2003.
