Resolution

Observations

The security council noted that, despite various political agreements, hostilities had resumed in Côte d'Ivoire in violation of the ceasefire agreement of May 2003. [2] There was concern at the humanitarian situation and the use of media to incite hatred against foreigners in the country. [2] At the same time, ongoing efforts by the African Union and Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) to establish peace and stability were praised.

Acts

The security council condemned air raids by the National Armed Forces of Côte d'Ivoire as a violation of the ceasefire and demanded that all parties comply with the ceasefire agreement, further emphasising there was no military solution to the conflict. [3] It reaffirmed support to the United Nations Operation in Côte d'Ivoire (UNOCI) and French forces. Meanwhile, it also demanded that all radio and television broadcasts inciting hatred and violence immediately cease. [4]

The resolution imposed an arms embargo on Côte d'Ivoire for an initial period of 13 months, which would not apply for United Nations or humanitarian uses. Additionally, a 12-month travel ban and asset freeze was imposed on those who were attempting to prevent the peace process, violate human rights or incite hatred in the country. [5] The restrictions would not apply in the case of humanitarian need. The Council decided that the measures would be reviewed in 13 months, and a Committee was established to monitor the implementation of the sanctions.
