United Nations Security Council resolution 1392, adopted unanimously on 31 January 2002, after recalling previous resolutions on East Timor (Timor-Leste), particularly resolutions 1272 (1999) and 1338 (2001), the Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Transitional Administration in East Timor (UNTAET) until 20 May 2002.[1]

The Security Council commended the work of UNTAET and the Special Representative of the Secretary-General in laying the foundations for the transition of East Timor to independence from Indonesia. It recalled an endorsement of the Constituent Assembly to declare independence on 20 May 2002. The Secretary-General Kofi Annan had recommended that the mandate be extended until independence was achieved and the Council awaited proposals from the Secretary-General for a successor United Nations mission post-independence.

UNTAET had been reducing its size due to the stabilisation of the situation in East Timor, and Resolution 1392 was the final time its mandate was extended before the establishment of the United Nations Mission of Support to East Timor.[2]
