to allow the Mission to begin its work,
Having received the report of the Secretary-General (S/26573) informing the
Council that the military authorities of Haiti, including the police, have not
complied in good faith with the Governors Island Agreement,
Determining that their failure to fulfil obligations under the Agreement
constitutes a threat to peace and security in the region,

1. Decides, in accordance with paragraph 2 of resolution 861 (1993), to
terminate the suspension of the measures set out in paragraphs 5 to 9 of
resolution 841 (1993) as of 2359 hours Eastern Standard Time on 18 October 1993
unless the Secretary-General, having regard to the views of the Secretary-
General of the Organization of American States, reports to the Council that the
parties to the Governors Island Agreement and any other authorities in Haiti are
implementing in full the agreement to reinstate the legitimate Government of
President Jean-Bertrand Aristide and have established the necessary measures to
enable UNMIH to carry out its mandate;
2. Decides also that funds that are required to be frozen pursuant to
paragraph 8 of resolution 841 (1993) may be released at the request of

case-by-case basis under the no-objection procedure in response to requests by
President Aristide or Prime Minister Malval of Haiti;
4. Confirms its readiness to consider urgently the imposition of
additional measures if the Secretary-General informs the Security Council that
the parties to the Governors Island Agreement or any other authorities in Haiti
continue to impede the activities of UNMIH or interfere with the freedom of
movement and communication of UNMIH and its members as well as the other rights
necessary for the performance of its mandate, or have not complied in full with
relevant Security Council resolutions and the provisions of the Governors Island
5. Decides to remain actively seized of the matter.
