The UN Security Council on Tuesday unanimously adopted a resolution extending the mandate of the panel of experts on Sudan sanctions until next year.

Determining that the situation in Sudan continues to constitute a threat to peace and security in the region, the Council has decided to extended the panel's mandate until Feb. 19, 2012, the resolution said.

The resolution also requested the Panel of Experts to provide a final report no later than 30 days prior to the termination of its mandate to the Council with findings and recommendations.

The Panel of Experts was set up in 2005 to help monitor the implementation of the arms embargo imposed by two Council resolutions, inform the Security Council Sanctions Committee about individuals who impede the peace process, violate international law or are responsible for offensive military overflights, monitor the implementation of targeted individual financial and travel sanctions and develop new recommendations to present to the Security Council.
