UN Security Council unanimously votes to end Iraq mission next year


 , Updated 22:54, 31-May-2024

At the request of Baghdad, the UN Security Council unanimously decided Friday that the UN Assistance Mission for Iraq (UNAMI), present in the country for over 20 years, would leave the country at the end of 2025. 

The UNSC resolution extended the mission's mandate for "a final 19-month period until 31 December 2025 after which UNAMI will cease all work and operations." 

UNAMI is a special political mission established in 2003 by UN Security Council Resolution 1500, at the request of the Iraqi government.

Its mandate is to prioritize the provision of advice, support, and assistance to the government and people of Iraq in advancing inclusive political dialogue and national and community-level reconciliation.

It also assisted in the electoral process, facilitated regional dialogue between Iraq and its neighbors, and promoted the protection of human rights and judicial and legal reforms.
