The MISAB monitoring mission of African countries was commended by the security council for its contributions towards stabilising the Central African Republic.[2] It stressed for the need of all the parties to the Bangui Agreements to implement them fully.

Under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, countries participating in MISAB were authorised to ensure the security and freedom of movement of their personnel for a further three months. The Secretary-General Kofi Annan was asked to establish a fund in which Member States could financially contribute to MISAB. Within three months, he was also instructed to report to the council on the implementation of the current resolution and recommendations for further international assistance to the Central African Republic.[3]
