United Nations Security Council Resolution 1675


United Nations Security Council Resolution 1675

United Nations Security Council Resolution 1675, adopted unanimously by the United Nations Security Council on April 28, 2006, extended the mandate of the United Nations Mission for the Referendum in Western Sahara (MINURSO) until October 31, 2006. The resolution was sponsored by the United States.

The resolution also calls on member states to "to consider voluntary contributions to fund confidence-building measures that allow for increased contact between separated family members, especially family unification visits".

The resolution states the secretary-general "provide a report on the situation in Western Sahara before the end of the mandate period".

In response to claims that UN peacekeeping missions have engaged in sexual abuse, the resolution requests that the secretary-general :"continue to take the necessary measures to achieve actual compliance in MINURSO with the United Nations zero-tolerance policy on sexual exploitation and abuse, including the development of strategies and appropriate mechanisms to prevent, identify and respond to all forms of misconduct, including sexual exploitation and abuse, and the enhancement of training for personnel to prevent misconduct and ensure full compliance with the United Nations code of conduct".
