SECURITY COUNCIL RECOMMENDS SWISS MEMBERSHIP TO UNITED NATIONS
The Security Council began its work this morning by referring the question of Switzerland\’s admission to the United Nations to its Committee on the Admission of New Members.
[The Security Council then met in a formal meeting to adopt a resolution (1426) in which it recommended to the General Assembly that Switzerland be admitted to membership in the United Nations. Security Council President, Ambassador Jeremy Greenstock of the United Kingdom, announced the decision and extended his congratulations on behalf of the Council in a statement he read out during the meeting.]
[The General Assembly is expected to vote on the Switzerland\’s membership during it\’s 57th session.}
Editor\’s note: As about the 190th country, Switzerland will finally be part of the United Nations. It took us just too long to go there. But finally, we will be able not only to accept the UN\’s descisions but also participate.
