Expressing its concern over the still fragile security, political and humanitarian situation in Timor-Leste, the Security Council, by its resolution 1704 of 25 August 2006, established a new, expanded operation—the United Nations Integrated Mission in Timor-Leste (UNMIT)—to support the Government in “consolidating stability, enhancing a culture of democratic governance, and facilitating political dialogue among Timorese stakeholders, in their efforts to bring about a process of national reconciliation and to foster social cohesion”. UNMIT took over from the United Nations Office in Timor-Leste.
