UN to move quickly for South Sudan membership
UN to move quickly to admit South Sudan as new member, hopefully on July 14
By The Associated Press

UNITED NATIONS (AP) ' The president of the U.N. Security Council says he expects a ministerial meeting on July 13 to recommend that South Sudan be admitted as the 193rd member of the United Nations.

Germany's U.N. Ambassador Peter Wittig said Tuesday that the General Assembly will likely meet the following day ' July 14 ' to approve South Sudan's membership.

Wittig said the council will be holding intensive consultations on a new U.N. mission for South Sudan which will include a peacekeeping force, international police, and civilians to help the new country build a democratic government.



He said negotiators have reached a provisional agreement on a future border monitoring mission but details must still be worked out.
