Resolution adopted by the General Assembly
[on the report of the Fifth Committee (A/55/681/Add.1)]

55/180. Financing of the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon
B1
The General Assembly,
Having considered the reports of the Secretary-General on the financing of the
United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon2 and the related reports of the Advisory
Committee on Administrative and Budgetary Questions,3
Bearing in mind Security Council resolution 425 (1978) of 19 March 1978, by which
the Council established the United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon, and the subsequent
resolutions by which the Council extended the mandate of the Force, the latest of which
was resolution 1337 (2001) of 30 January 2001,
Recalling its resolutions S-8/2 of 21 April 1978 on the financing of the Force and its
subsequent resolutions thereon, the latest of which was resolution 55/180 A of
19 December 2000,
Reaffirming its resolutions 51/233 of 13 June 1997, 52/237 of 26 June 1998, 53/227
of 8 June 1999, 54/267 of 15 June 2000 and 55/180 A,
Reaffirming also the general principles underlying the financing of United Nations
peacekeeping operations, as stated in General Assembly resolutions 1874 (S-IV) of
27 June 1963, 3101 (XXVIII) of 11 December 1973 and 55/235 of 23 December 2000,
Noting with appreciation that voluntary contributions have been made to the Force,
Mindful of the fact that it is essential to provide the Force with the necessary
financial resources to enable it to fulfil its responsibilities under the relevant resolutions of
the Security Council,
Concerned that the Secretary-General continues to face difficulties in meeting the
obligations of the Force on a current basis, including reimbursement to current and former
troop-contributing States,
