Following programmes were referred to as UNMIH II -- MINUHA II. Initial mandate: 6 months, subsequently extended. Advance team had been dispatched, 8 Sep 1993. Military contingent prevented from landing, 11 Oct 1993. Following imposition of sanctions and international diplomatic efforts, a military operation was authorized by Security Council on 17 Sep 1994, under resolution 940 (1994). It indicated that force might be used to remove the military leadership from power in Haiti and ensure return of the democratic government of President Aristide. Final diplomatic efforts resulted in Haitian military leaders agreeing to resign following a general amnesty, when Haitian military and police forces would cooperate with the multinational force in efforts to establish a stable and secure environment during the transitional period. Lead elements of the multinational force landing in Haiti, 19 Sep 1994, an advance team of military observers on 23 Sep 1994, and President Aristide returned to Haiti and resumed his functions, 15 Oct 1994. Following Security Council resolution 964 (1994) of 29 Nov 1994, the advance team was progressively strengthened. Mandate terminated in Jun 1996.
