                Proclamation 7452 of June 26, 2001
 
                Suspension of Entry as Immigrants and 
                Nonimmigrants of Persons Responsible for Actions That 
                Threaten International Stabilization Efforts in the 
                Western Balkans, and Persons Responsible for Wartime 
                Atrocities in That Region

                By the President of the United States of America

                A Proclamation

                The United States has a vital interest in assuring 
                peace and stability in Europe. In the Western Balkans, 
                the United States is engaged, together with North 
                Atlantic Treaty Organization Allies, the Organization 
                for Security and Cooperation in Europe, United Nations 
                missions, the European Union, and other international 
                organizations in an effort to achieve peace, stability, 
                reconciliation, and democratic development and to 
                facilitate the region's integration into the European 
                mainstream. The United States views full implementation 
                of the Dayton Peace Accords in Bosnia and United 
                Nations Security Council Resolution 1244 in Kosovo as 
                critical to these efforts.

                In furtherance of these objectives, the United States 
                has provided military, diplomatic, financial, and 
                logistical support to international institutions 
                established in the region and to civil and security 
                authorities. The United States has a direct and 
                significant interest in the success of such initiatives 
                and in the safety of personnel involved in them, 
                including numerous United States military and 
                Government officials.

                In light of these objectives, I have determined that it 
                is in the interests of the United States to restrict 
                the entry into the United States of persons responsible 
                for actions that threaten international stabilization 
                efforts in the Western Balkans region, and of persons 
                responsible for wartime atrocities committed in that 
                region since 1991.

                NOW, THEREFORE, I, GEORGE W. BUSH, President of the 
                United States of America, by the authority vested in me 
                by the Constitution and laws of the United States, 
                including section 212(f) of the Immigration and 
                Nationality Act of 1952, as amended (8 U.S.C. 1182(f)), 
                and section 301 of title 3, United States Code, hereby 
                find that the unrestricted immigrant and nonimmigrant 
                entry into the United States of persons described in 
                section 1 of this proclamation would, except as 
                provided for in sections 2 and 3 of this proclamation, 
                be detrimental to the interests of the United States. I 
                therefore hereby proclaim that:

                Section 1. The immigrant and nonimmigrant entry into 
                the United States of the following persons is hereby 
                suspended:

                    (a) Persons who, through violent or other acts: (i) 
                seek to obstruct the implementation of the Dayton Peace 
                Accords (the ``Dayton Agreements'') or United Nations 
                Security Council Resolution 1244 of June 10, 1999; (ii) 
                seek to undermine the authority or security of the 
                United Nations Interim Administration Mission in 
                Kosovo, the international security presence in Kosovo 
                known as the Kosovo Force, the Office of the High 
                Representative in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the 
                international security presence in Bosnia known as the 
                Stabilization Force, the Organization for Security and 
                Cooperation in Europe, the International Criminal 
                Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia, or other 
                international organizations and entities present in the 
                region pursuant to the Dayton Agreement or United 
                Nations Security Council resolutions,

[[Page 34776]]

                including but not limited to Resolutions 827, 1031, and 
                1244; (iii) seek to intimidate or to prevent displaced 
                persons or refugees from returning to their places of 
                residence in any area or state of the Western Balkans 
                region; or (iv) otherwise seek to undermine peace, 
                stability, reconciliation, or democratic development in 
                any area or state of the Western Balkans region.
                    (b) Persons who are responsible for directing, 
                planning, or carrying out wartime atrocities, including 
                but not limited to acts in furtherance of ``ethnic 
                cleansing,'' committed in any area or state of the 
                Western Balkans region since 1991.

                Sec. 2. Section 1 of this proclamation shall not apply 
                with respect to any person otherwise covered by section 
                1 where entry of such person would not be contrary to 
                the interest of the United States.

                Sec. 3. Persons covered by sections 1 and 2 of this 
                proclamation shall be identified by the Secretary of 
                State or the Secretary's designee, in his or her sole 
                discretion, pursuant to such procedures as the 
                Secretary may establish under section 5 of this 
                proclamation.

                Sec. 4. Nothing in this proclamation shall be construed 
                to derogate from United States Government obligations 
                under applicable international agreements.

                Sec. 5. The Secretary of State shall have 
                responsibility for implementing this proclamation 
                pursuant to such procedures as the Secretary may 
                establish.

                Sec. 6. This proclamation is effective immediately and 
                shall remain in effect until such time as the Secretary 
                of State determines that it is no longer necessary and 
                should be terminated, either in whole or in part. The 
                Secretary of State shall advise the Attorney General of 
                such determination, which shall become effective upon 
                publication in the Federal Register.

                IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this 
                twenty-sixth day of June, in the year of our Lord two 
                thousand one, and of the Independence of the United 
                States of America the two hundred and twenty-fifth.

                    (Presidential Sig.)B
