The Council, having unanimously adopting resolution 2492, said it extended the mandate modification for UNISFA established by resolution 2024 (2011) that included support for the Joint Mechanism.

In a statement, Council said it was the final such extension unless both countries took measures to demonstrate measurable progress on border demarcation.

“If not, it decided, UNISFA’s authorized troop ceiling would have been decreased by 557 troops on today [Tuesday],” it stated.

The Security Council first modified the UNISFA mandate in December 2011 to add tasks of supporting a Joint Border Verification and Monitoring Mechanism of Sudan and South Sudan, which gained independence from the former in July 2011.
