The summary states, “In paragraph 1 of its resolution 1631 (2005) the Security Council expressed its determination to take appropriate steps to the further development of cooperation between the United Nations and regional and subregional organizations in maintaining international peace and security.

…The challenges to be addressed are clarification of the identity and role of each member in this partnership and a programme of action for capacity-building to ensure more equal ability among United Nations regional and other partners around the world to assist in the maintenance of peace and security.
