United Nations Security Council Resolution 1726, adopted unanimously on December 15, 2006, after recalling previous resolutions on the situation in Côte d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast), the Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Operation in Côte d'Ivoire (UNOCI) and supporting French forces until January 10, 2007.[1]


The Security Council was very concerned about the ongoing political crisis and its deterioration in Côte d'Ivoire, resulting in "grave" humanitarian consequences. It reaffirmed its support for UNOCI and the supporting French forces as part of Operation Unicorn, and stated that the situation in the country continued to constitute a threat to international peace and security.

Acting under Chapter VII of the United Nations Charter, the Council extended the mandates of UNOCI and the French supporting forces in Operation Unicorn until January 10, 2007.[2]
