United Nations Security Council resolution 1082, adopted unanimously on 27 November 1996, after recalling previous resolutions including 1046 (1996) and 1058 (1996), the Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Preventive Deployment Force (UNPREDEP) in Macedonia until 31 May 1997 and reduced its size. [1]

Contents

It was noted that UNPREDEP had played an important role in maintaining peace and stability in Macedonia. The security situation had continued to improve, but stability and peace in the former Yugoslavia had not yet been achieved. It was hoped that positive developments would continue and the size of UNPREDEP would be further retracted. Macedonia's relations with neighbouring countries had improved and an agreement was reached with the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (Serbia and Montenegro) on the demarcation of their common border.

By extending UNPREDEP's mandate until 31 May 1997, the council also signalled the reduction of its military component by 300 by 30 April 1997 with a view to concluding its mandate when circumstances permitted. [2] All Member States were urged to positively consider requests from the Secretary-General for assistance to be provided to UNPREDEP, requesting the Secretary-General to report back to the council by 15 April 1997 on recommendations for the future of the international presence in Macedonia.

Russia abstained.

United Nations Confidence Restoration Operation in Croatia

The United Nations Confidence Restoration Operation in Croatia, commonly abbreviated UNCRO, was a United Nations (UN) peacekeeping mission in Croatia. It was established under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter and approved by the UN Security Council (UNSC) Resolution 981 on 31 March 1995. UNCRO inherited personnel and infrastructure from the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR). Its command was located in Zagreb; the peacekeeping troops were deployed in four sectors named North, South, East, and West. Twenty different countries contributed troops to the mission.

The United Nations Preventive Deployment Force (UNPREDEP) was established on 31 March 1995 in Security Council Resolution 983 to replace the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR) in the Republic of North Macedonia. The mandate of UNPREDEP remained essentially the same: to monitor and report any developments in the border areas which could undermine confidence and stability in the country and threaten its territory. It is widely considered to be an instance of a successful deployment of UN peacekeeping forces in the prevention of conflict and violence against civilians. The operation was shut down on 28 February 1999, after its last extension in Resolution 1186 when China vetoed its renewal in 1999 following North Macedonia's diplomatic recognition of Taiwan.
