In the preamble of the resolution, the Council expressed condolences on the death of John Garang de Mabior, and commended Salva Kiir Mayardit for his efforts in the peace process. It welcomed the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement by the Sudanese government and Sudan People's Liberation Army/Movement (SPLA/M) and urged the parties to meet their obligations under that agreement.

The resolution determined the situation to remain a threat to international peace and security.


The mandate of UNMIS was extended with an intention for further renewals if necessary.[2] The Secretary-General Kofi Annan was requested to report every three months on the situation, including efforts by UNMIS to support the African Union Mission in Sudan. Finally, troop-contributing countries were instructed to take appropriate action to prevent sexual exploitation by UNMIS personnel.
