UN Security Council Resolution 1876: Guinea-Bissau

This resolution was adopted on June 26, 2009, and establishes UN and Guinea-Bissau efforts to stabilize the country and strengthen national institutions.

The UN states that this resolution "underlined the importance of establishing a fully integrated office with effective coordination of strategies and programmes between United Nations agencies, funds and programmes, between the United Nations and international donors, and between UNIOGBIS, the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) and other United Nations missions in the region. The Council urged Guinea-Bissau’s political leaders to refrain from involving the military in politics, and requested them to use legal and peaceful means to solve their differences.  It called on the Government of Guinea-Bissau to conduct credible and transparent investigations into the political assassinations in March and June and to bring to justice those responsible."
