The General Assembly today adopted 3 texts, General Assembly Appropriates Extra Funding of $14.59 Million to Maintain Peacekeeping Missions in Abyei, Golan, South Sudan. 

The three consensus resolutions, approved by the Fifth Committee (Administrative and Budgetary) at its 24 May meeting, will help keep two peacekeeping missions in Africa and one in the Middle East running smoothly until the end of June.  Together, the texts provide $14.59 million in additional funding for the missions’ 2022/23 fiscal year.

By the terms of the text “Financing of the United Nations Interim Security Force for Abyei” (document A/77/890), the Assembly decided to appropriate an additional $8.51 million for the Force’s maintenance until the end of June, on top of the $259.66 million already allocated for that fiscal year through its resolution 76/281.  By the text “Financing of the United Nations peacekeeping forces in the Middle East:  United Nations Disengagement Observer Force” (document A/77/891), it decided to appropriate an extra $1.03 million for that Force’s maintenance through June, on top of the $64.54 million it previously allocated for 2022/23 by its resolution 76/289. Similarly, through the terms of “Financing of the United Nations Mission in South Sudan” (document A/77/892), the Assembly appropriated $5.05 million for that Mission’s maintenance until June’s end, on top of the $1.12 billion it already allocated under its resolution 76/291.
