While agreeing to extend the current UNMIN at the request of the Nepalese government, the Security Council also endorsed Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's proposal of a phased, gradual draw-down and withdrawal of UNMIN staff, and agreed with the Secretary-General that the current monitoring arrangements in Nepal could not be maintained indefinitely.
The Council called on the Nepalese Government to create the necessary conditions for UNMIN to complete their mission conditions at the end of their mandate in order for United Nations staff to begin withdrawal. The Council also requested that the Secretary-General submit a report no later than April 30, 2009, on the progress of implementation of the resolution.
