The U.N. peacekeeping operation in the West African country of Ivory Coast has been providing logistical and technical assistance to support presidential elections.
However, the election process has been stalled and the presidential polls were recently postponed following the suspension of voter registration, the United Nations reported.
The Security Council met Thursday to discuss the peacekeeping operations in Ivory Coast amid a growing sense of frustration and rising tensions.
Authorities in Ivory Coast have been working since 2005 to have the presidential polls.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called on the Security Council to approve the peacekeeping mandate in Ivory Coast until at least the end of December to give the election process time to proceed.
