United Nations Security Council resolution 1415, adopted unanimously on 30 May 2002, after considering a report by the Secretary-General Kofi Annan regarding the United Nations Disengagement Observer Force (UNDOF) and reaffirming Resolution 1308 (2000), the Council extended its mandate for a further seven months until 31 December 2002.[1]

The resolution called upon the parties concerned to immediately implement Resolution 338 (1973) and requested that the Secretary-General submit a report on the situation at the end of that period.

The Secretary-General's report pursuant to the previous resolution on UNDOF said that the situation between Israel and Syria had remained calm with no serious incidents though the situation in the Middle East as a whole continued to remain dangerous until a settlement could be reached.[2] Furthermore, land mines in the area of separation also posed a threat to UNDOF personnel.[3]
