United Nations Security Council resolution1628, adopted unanimously on 30 September 2005, after recalling all previous resolutions on the situation in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, including resolutions 1565 (2004), 1592 (2005), 1596 (2005) and 1621 (2005), the Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Mission in the Democratic Republic of Congo (MONUC) for a period of one month.[1]

The Council reaffirmed its support for the sovereignty, territorial integrity and independence of the Democratic Republic of the Congo and extended the mandate of MONUC until 31 October 2005. The resolution was essentially technical in nature to allow the Council more time to discuss a one-year extension of the mission proposed by the Secretary-General Kofi Annan.
