The United Nations Security Council unanimously agreed to extend the U.N. mission in Sudan for one more year to support the implementation of the 2005 peace agreement that ended the second Sudanese civil war involving the Sudanese People’s Liberation Army separatists in the south and the national government in the north.

The mandate will remain effective through April 30, 2011, “with the intention to renew it for further periods as may be required,” according to a U.N. statement.
