Description
The Security Council this afternoon approved the establishment of the position of Force Commander of the United Nations Preventive Deployment Force (UNPREDEP) in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia and authorized an increase in the Force's strength by 50 military personnel for the duration of its current mandate, which expires on 30 May.

Through its unanimous adoption of resolution 1046 (1996), the Council also asked the Secretary-General to submit, not later than 20 May, his further recommendations on the composition, strength and mandate of the Force. The authorized increase in Force strength aims at ensuring continued engineering capability for the Mission's operations.

Today's action followed a recommendation by the Secretary-General that UNPREDEP, formerly under the command and control of the United Nations Peace Forces Headquarters (UNPF-HQ) in the former Yugoslavia, be established as an independent mission, reporting directly to United Nations Headquarters in New York. The President of the Council has informed the Secretary-General that Council members "agree in principle" with that recommendation.

The meeting, which was called to order at 12:32 p.m., was adjourned at 12:34 p.m.
