The mandate of the team of military observers would expire after three months, with the Council contemplating that the advance team would be incorporated into a United Nations observer mission if such a mission is established. A report by the Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali was anticipated on the proposed establishment of an observer mission, including its financial costs and a time-frame and projected conclusion for the operation. The United Nations Observer Mission in Georgia was established in Resolution 858.
