United Nations Security Council Resolution 1665, adopted unanimously on March 29, 2006, after recalling previous resolutions on the situation in Sudan, particularly resolutions 1556 (2004), 1591 (2005) and 1651 (2005), the Council extended the mandate of an expert panel monitoring sanctions against and violations of human rights in the Darfur region until September 29, 2006.[1]


The Security Council stressed its commitment to peace in Sudan, the implementation of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement and the end of the violations in the Darfur region. It emphasised the need for respecting elements of the United Nations Charter, including those relating to the Convention on the Privileges and Immunities. Council members stated that the situation continued to constitute a threat to international peace and security in the region.


The resolution, enacted under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, extended the expert panel established in Resolution 1591 and extended by Resolution 1651 until September 29, 2006 and requested it to report on the implementation of the sanctions and observations on human rights.[2] All relevant United Nations bodies, the African Union and others were urged to co-operate with the expert panel and the Committee established in Resolution 1591.
