Description
Amid ongoing violence perpetrated by armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, the Security Council today renewed the sanctions regime imposed on that country and extended until 1 August 2024 the mandate of the Group of Experts overseeing its implementation.

Unanimously adopting resolution 2688 (2023) (to be issued as document S/RES/2688(2023)) and acting under Chapter VII of the Charter of the United Nations, the Council decided to renew until 1 July 2024 the measures set out in paragraphs 1 through 6 of resolution 2293 (2016) related to arms, transport, finance and travel. It also demanded that States ensure that all measures taken by them to implement the resolution comply with their obligations under international law.

Among other provisions, the text reaffirmed the importance of ensuring the safety and security of the members of the Group of Experts and recalled the Secretary-General’s commitment that the United Nations will do everything possible to ensure that the perpetrators of the killing of two of the Group’s members — and four Congolese nationals accompanying them — are brought to justice.

The meeting began at 10:17 a.m. and ended at 10:26 a.m.
