The adjustments were made in line with recommendations proposed in the High-Level Implementation Panel on Peace Operations report in June 2015.

To support the implementation of the peace agreement, the resolution stated that UNMISS will support the planning and establishment of agreed transitional security arrangements.

Moreover, the resolution said that UNMISS will assist the parties with disarmament, demobilization and reintegration activities, as well as with security sector reform.

The 15-nation council adopted the resolution with 13 votes in favor and two abstaining.
