Military Tasks

previous next

UN Military Observers carry out field tasks deriving from the mandate and functions of UNMOGIP, as directed by the Chief Military Observer-Head of Mission. Field tasks are further divided into operational tasks, which are the instruments of the Mission to accomplish the mandate, and support tasks, which are the administrative and logistic activities needed to perform the operational tasks.

UN Military Observers maintain UN presence in the area of responsibility and monitor the situation through operational tasks, including conducting investigations of alleged ceasefire violation complaints, field trips to military units, area reconnaissance and manning of observation posts.
