Committee

    There will be a closed meeting of the Cultural Property Advisory 
Committee on Thursday, March 13, and Friday, March 14, 2014, at the 
Department of State, Annex 5, 2200 C Street NW., Washington, DC.
    The Committee will conduct interim reviews of the Memorandum of 
Understanding Between the Government of the United States of America 
and the Government of the Republic of Italy Concerning the Imposition 
of Import Restrictions on Categories of Archaeological Material 
Representing the Pre-Classical, Classical and Imperial Roman Periods of 
Italy, and the Memorandum of Understanding Between the Government of 
the United States of America and the Government of the Republic of 
Colombia Concerning the Imposition of Import Restrictions on 
Archaeological Materials from the Pre-Columbian Cultures and Certain 
Ecclesiastical Material from the Colonial Period of Colombia. Public 
comment, oral and written, will be invited at a time in the future 
should either or both of these Memoranda of Understanding be proposed 
for extension.
    The Committee's responsibilities are carried out in accordance with 
provisions of the Convention on Cultural Property Implementation Act 
(19 U.S.C. 2601 et seq.). The text of the Act and Memoranda of 
Understanding, as well as related information, may be found at http://culturalheritage.state.gov.
    This meeting will be closed pursuant to 5 U.S.C. 552b(c)(9)(B) and 
19 U.S.C. 2605(h), the latter of which stipulates that ``The provisions 
of the Federal Advisory Committee Act . . . shall apply to the 
[Cultural Property Advisory] Committee except that the requirements of 
subsections (a) and (b) of section 10 and 11 of such Act (relating to 
open meetings, public notice, public participation, and public 
availability of documents) shall not apply to the Committee, whenever 
and to the extent it is determined by the President or his designee 
that the disclosure of matters involved in the Committee's proceedings 
would compromise the Government's negotiation objectives or bargaining 
positions on the negotiations of any agreement authorized by this 
title.''
    Pursuant to law, executive order, and delegation of authority, I 
have made such a determination.

    Dated: February 7, 2014.
