The UN Security Council established the UN Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE) under resolution 1312 of June 2000. UNMEE was established to support the 18 June 2000 Agreement on Cessation of Hostilities that was signed in Algiers, Algeria. Algerian President, Abdelaziz Bouteflika, chaired the peace talks. The UN Security Council emphasised that the agreement linked the termination of the UN peacekeeping mission with the completion of the process of delimitation and demarcation of the Ethiopian-Eritrean border. The parties called upon the UN, in cooperation with OAU, to establish a peacekeeping operation to assist in the implementation of the Agreement.
