United Nations Security Council resolution 1222, adopted unanimously on 15 January 1999, after recalling previous resolutions on Croatia including resolutions 779 (1992), 981 (1995), 1147 (1998) and 1183 (1998), the Council authorised the United Nations Mission of Observers in Prevlaka (UNMOP) to continue monitoring the demilitarisation in the Prevlaka peninsula area of Croatia until 15 July 1999.[1]

The security council welcomed the recent lifting of restrictions on the freedom of movement of UNMOP and improved co-operation from Croatia but noted at the same time long-standing violations of the demilitarisation regime and the presence of Yugoslav and occasionally Croatian forces. It also welcomed the willingness of Croatia to reopen crossing points with Montenegro as a significant confidence-building measure which had led to civilian traffic in both directions.

The parties were urged to fully implement an agreement on the normalisation of their relations, cease violations of the demilitarisation regime, reduce tension and to ensure freedom of movement to United Nations observers. The Secretary-General Kofi Annan was asked to consider a reduction of the military observers to as low as 22 in light of the improved conditions.[2] He was also requested to report to the council on the situation by 15 April 1999 concerning progress towards a peaceful solution of the dispute between Croatia and Serbia and Montenegro. Finally, the Stabilisation Force, authorised in Resolution 1088 (1996) and extended by Resolution 1174 (1998), was required to co-operate with UNMOP.
