Having determined that the situation in Burundi
continued to constitute a threat to international peace and
security in the region and acting under Chapter VII of the UN
Charter, the Security Council, by its resolution
1545 of 21 May 2004, decided to establish the United Nations
Operation in Burundi (ONUB) in order to support and help to
implement the efforts undertaken by Burundians to restore lasting
peace and bring about national reconciliation, as provided under
the Arusha Agreement.
ONUB successfully completed its mandate on 31 December 2006. It was succeeded by the United Nations Integrated Office in Burundi (BINUB), established by Security Council resolution 1719 of 25 October 2006.
