The Security council, restructured the United Nations Protection Force (UNPROFOR) in the former Yugoslavia, replacing it with three separate but interlinked peace-keeping operations in Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. The new administrative structures assume nearly all the functions of the former UNPROFOR, with substantial alteration of the mandate in Croatia. Each operation will have its own civilian chief of mission and its own military commander, with overall command and control exercised by the special representative of the Secretary-General and a theatre force commander, headquartered in Zagreb, Croatia.
