United Nations Security Council resolution 1527, adopted unanimously on 4 February 2004, after recalling previous resolutions on the situation in Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), particularly resolutions 1464 (2003), 1498 (2003) and 1514 (2003), the Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Mission in Côte d'Ivoire (MINUCI) until 27 February 2004.[1]

The Security Council reaffirmed its support for the Linas-Marcoussis Agreement and its full implementation. It commended the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and French forces for their efforts to promote a peaceful settlement in Côte d'Ivoire, but noted existing challenges to the stability of the country.

Under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, the mandate of MINUCI was extended along with authorisation given to ECOWAS and French forces operating in the country.[2] Meanwhile, the Secretary-General Kofi Annan was requested to prepare for the deployment of a peacekeeping mission in Côte d'Ivoire within five weeks following a decision by the Council.[3]
