  • United Nations Security Council resolution 1561, adopted unanimously on 17 September 2004, after recalling all previous resolutions on the situation in Liberia, particularly resolutions 1497 (2003), 1503 (2003), 1521 (2003) and 1532 (2004), the Council extended the mandate of the United Nations Mission in Liberia (UNMIL) for a further year until September 19, 2005.[1]

    The Security Council recognised the important role that the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) was playing in the Liberian process in addition to that of the African Union and United Nations. There had also been substantial progress with regards to disarmament in the disarmament, demobilisation, reintegration and rehabilitation process.[2]

    Liberian parties were called upon to commit themselves to the peace process and to ensure the holding of free, fair and transparent general elections by October 2005. Meanwhile, the international community was asked to fulfil pledges made at the International Reconstruction Conference on Liberia in February 2004 and make funds available for the reintegration and rehabilitation process. Finally, the Secretary-General Kofi Annan to report on progress made by UNMIL in the fulfilment of its mandate.
