United Nations Security Council resolution 650, adopted unanimously on 27 March 1990, after recalling resolutions 637 (1989) and 644 (1989), the Council endorsed the report by the Secretary-General and decided to authorise an enlargement of the United Nations Observer Group in Central America (ONUCA) in order to demobilise the Contras in Nicaragua.[1]

The size of ONUCA was increased by an additional 800 personnel, including the addition of a Venezuelan combat battalion and security to oversee weapons disposal in Honduras.[2][3] It also permitted the addition of armed personnel to its numbers, and requested the Secretary-General keep the Council informed on the implementation of the resolution.
