Contents

Talks between the government and the United Tajik Opposition in Tajikistan were positive and a ceasefire had been agreed for another 3 months until 26 August 1995. Both sides wanted to resolve the conflict peacefully and to reach national reconciliation based on mutual concessions and compromises. It was noted that the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) peacekeeping force in the country had its mandate extended until 31 December 1995. Both parties, the peacekeeping forces and the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe mission were in close contact with each other.

UNMOT's mandate was extended to 15 December 1995 on condition that the agreement and the ceasefire remained in place and the parties continued to work towards reconciliation and democracy. Every three months, the Secretary-General Boutros Boutros-Ghali was requested to submit reports to the council on the situation. The parties were urged to build confidence by exchanging prisoner of war and permitting the voluntary return of refugees.

The council stressed the urgency of a cessation of hostilities on the Tajik-Afghan border, calling on all countries to discourage activities that could hamper the peace process in Tajikistan. [2] In this regard, the Secretary-General was required to report on discussions with the authorities in Afghanistan regarding a proposed deployment of United Nations personnel in northern Afghanistan. Contributions and humanitarian aid from some countries was welcomed further assistance was requested.

The United Nations Mission of Observers in Tajikistan (UNMOT) was a peacekeeping mission established by the United Nations Security Council in December 1994 and extended on several occasions until its mandate expired in May 2000. Its purpose was to monitor peace agreements during and after the Tajikistan Civil War. The observers were first deployed in the wake of the ceasefire, in 1994, between the ruling government of Tajikistan, led by Emomali Rahmonov, and the United Tajik Opposition. After the UN-sponsored armistice ended the war in 1997, the UN expanded the mission's original mandate to monitor the peace and demobilization. The mission was headquartered in Dushanbe, Tajikistan.
