1. A method for sidelink Radio Link Control (RLC) entity establishment, comprising:
a first User Equipment (UE) receives a Radio Resource Control (RRC) message from a network node, wherein the RRC message includes a first sidelink RLC bearer configuration and wherein the first sidelink RLC bearer configuration includes a first index identifying the first sidelink RLC bearer configuration and a first sidelink RLC configuration;
the first UE transmits a first PC5 RRC message to a second UE, wherein the first PC5 RRC message includes the first sidelink RLC bearer configuration;
the first UE receives a second PC5 RRC message from the second UE, wherein the second PC5 RRC message includes a second sidelink RLC bearer configuration and wherein the second sidelink RLC bearer configuration includes a second index identifying the second sidelink RLC bearer configuration and a second sidelink RLC configuration; and
the first UE associates the first sidelink RLC configuration with the second sidelink RLC configuration to form RLC parameters of a RLC entity when the first index is equal to the second index.
