U.S. Contribution to the Korea Peninsula Energy 
                Development Organization (KEDO): Certification and 
                Waiver Under the Heading ``Nonproliferation, Anti-

                of the Foreign Operations, Export Financing, and 
                Related Programs Appropriations Act, 2001, as Enacted 
                in Public Law 106-429

                Memorandum for the Secretary of State

                Pursuant to section 572(b) of the Foreign Operations, 
                Export Financing, and Related Programs Appropriations 
                Act, 2001, (the ``Act'') (Public Law 106-429), I hereby 
                certify that:

                    (1) the parties to the Agreed Framework have taken 
                and continue to take demonstrable steps to implement 
                the Joint Declaration on Denuclearization of the Korean 
                Peninsula in which the Government of North Korea has 
                committed not to test, manufacture, produce, receive, 
                possess, store, deploy, or use nuclear weapons, and not 
                to possess nuclear reprocessing or uranium enrichment 
                facilities;
                    (2) the parties to the Agreed Framework have taken 
                and continue to take demonstrable steps to pursue the 
                North-South dialogue;
                    (3) North Korea is complying with all provisions of 
                the Agreed Framework;
                    (6) North Korea is complying with its commitments 
                regarding access to suspect underground construction at 
                Kumchang-ni; and
                    (8) the United States is continuing to make 
                significant progress on eliminating the North Korean 
                ballistic missle threat, including further missle tests 
                and its ballistic missle exports.

                Pursuant to the authority vested in me by section 
                572(c) of the Act, I hereby determine that it is vital 
                to the national security interests of the United States 
                to waive the certification requirements of section 
                572(b) of the Act with respect to paragraphs (4), (5), 
                and (7) of section 572(b) and therefore hereby waive 
                those three certification requirements in order to 
                furnish up to $55 million in funds made available under 
                the heading ``Nonproliferation, Anti-terrorism, 
                Demining and Related Programs'' of the Act, for 
                assistance for KEDO.
