The MISAB monitoring mission of African countries was commended by the Security Council for its contributions towards stabilising the Central African Republic, including the surrender of weapons. The countries participating in the mission had extended its mandate, with the aim of establishing a United Nations peacekeeping mission in the country. It also stressed for the need of all the parties to the Bangui Agreements to implement them fully.

Acting 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 until 16 March 1998. Furthermore, the Secretary-General Kofi Annan intended to appoint a Special Representative to assist the parties in implementing the agreements. He was also instructed to submit recommendations by 23 February 1998 on all aspects concerning the establishment of a peacekeeping operation in the country, which would be decided upon on 16 March 1998.
