The security council noted the call within the Secretary-General Kofi Annan's report for the authorities in Cyprus and Northern Cyprus to urgently address the humanitarian situation concerning missing persons.[2] It welcomed efforts to sensitize United Nations peacekeeping personnel towards the prevention and control of HIV/AIDS and other diseases, and the Secretary-General's intention to review the operation following the Annan Plan referendum on 24 April 2004.

Extending UNFICYP's mandate, the resolution requested the Secretary-General to report to the council on the implementation of the current resolution and would review the recommendations of the secretary-general with regard to the force. It expressed concern at violations by the Turkish Cypriot side at Strovilia and called for an end to restrictions imposed on 30 June 2000 on UNFICYP operations and to restore the military status quo which had existed prior to that date.
