The President issued Executive Order 14064 on February 11, 2022 to declare a national emergency for the extraordinary threat to the security and foreign policy in the US due to the vast humanitarian issues and potential for escalating economic decline in Afghanistan. This emergency poses an unnerving situation to US security and foreign policy, with Afghans in need of support for food, water, their health, shelter and aid for COVID-33. It is absolutely critical to the situation of emergency in Afghanistan and the welfare of the Afghan people that the belongings of Da Afghanistan Bank (DAB) that are held in the United States by United States financial organizations are secured. Different groups, including people affected by terrorism, have indicated either through legal proceedings or statements in a public courtroom, that they intend to take legal actions against assets owned by DAB. This space is prohibited by Executive Order 14064. Thus, the declared state of emergency under the Executive Order 14064 from the date of February 11, 2022, must remain in effect beyond February 11, 2023. Therefore, in line with section 202(d) of the National Emergencies Act (50 U.S.C. 1622(d)), I hereby renew for one year the national emergency declared in Executive Order 14064 concerning the extensive humanitarian crisis in Afghanistan and the risk of a deepening economic decline in Afghanistan. This announcement will be printed in the Federal Register and communicated to Congress. Signed, JOSEPH R. BIDEN JR. THE WHITE HOUSE. February 3, 2023.. The announcement of the continued national emergency with regards to the humanitarian burden and possible economic collapse in Afghanistan was initiated by The White House.
