United Nations Security Council Resolution 1656, adopted unanimously on January 31, 2006, after reaffirming all resolutions on Abkhazia and Georgia, particularly Resolution 1615 (2005), the Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Observer Mission in Georgia (UNOMIG) until March 31, 2006.[1]

In his report on the situation, the Secretary-General Kofi Annan had recommended an extension until July 31, 2006, though this was not adopted by Council members,[2] at the insistence of Russia.[3]
