In March 2005, the UN Security Council unanimously approved Resolution 1590 authorising a peacekeeping force of more than 10,000 troops for Southern Sudan (UNMIS). The mandate of UNMIS ended on 9 July 2011 following the completion of the interim period set up by the Government of Sudan and the Sudan People’s Liberation Army/Movement (SPLM) during the signing of the Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) on 9 January 2005. (See Peace treaties section) The Security Council established a new mission in its stead, the United Nations Mission in the Republic of South Sudan (UNMISS).
On 31 July 2007, the UN Security Council unanimously approved Resolution 1769, authorising a joint ("hybrid") mission to Darfur (UNAMID) of almost 20,000 African Union and UN peacekeepers and more than 6,000 police officers.
The United Nations Interim Security Force for Abyei (UNISFA) was set up by the Security Council via its resolution 1990 of 27 June 2011 as a response to the violence in the Abyei region and with a Chapter VII mandate to use force.
As of March 2012, Sudan was not providing any personnel to UN peacekeeping operations.
