Now, Article 10 deals with the return to barracks of army units not required for normal security. Then Article 11 deals with the setting up of a Neutral Monitoring Group. Article 12 now, can we have a look at that, please:

As from the date of the deployment of the Neutral Monitoring Group, the Executive Outcomes shall be confined to barracks under the supervision of the Joint Monitoring Group and the Neutral Monitoring Group. Government shall use all its endeavouring, consistent with its treaty obligations, to repatriate other foreign troops no later than three months after the deployment of the Neutral Monitoring Group or six months after the signing of the peace agreement, whichever is earlier."

Why was this provision thought necessary?
