The Security Council reaffirmed the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Iraq, and the role of the United Nations in the country through the strengthening of institutions and promote national dialogue, the latter of which was cruicial for Iraq's stability and unity. It welcomed the view of Iraq that there continued to be a cruicial role for UNAMI in assisting the country to build a "productive and prosperous nation at peace with itself and its neighbours".
Extending UNAMI's mandate for an additional twelve months, the Council declared its intention to review its mandate if requested to do so by the Iraqi government. Finally, the Secretary-General Kofi Annan was required to update the Council regularly on developments relating to the International Compact of Iraq.
