Adoption of the agenda

Admission of new Members

The President (spoke in Arabic): The Security Council will now begin its consideration of the item on its agenda.

In a letter dated 23 September 2011 addressed to the Secretary-General, the application of Palestine for admission to membership in the United Nations was submitted by its President. That letter has been circulated as an attachment to a note by the Secretary-General, contained in document S/2011/592.

Under the provisions of rule 59 of the provisional rules of procedure of the Security Council, unless the Council decides otherwise, an application for membership shall be referred by the President of the Council to the Committee on the Admission of New Members. Accordingly, unless I hear a proposal to the contrary, I shall refer the application of Palestine to the Committee on the Admission of New Members for examination and report.

As I hear no objection, it is so decided.

I would propose that the Committee on the Admission of New Members meet on Friday, 30 September 2011 at 10 a.m. in Conference Room 1 in the North Lawn Building to consider the application of Palestine for membership in the United Nations.

This record contains the text of speeches delivered in English and of the interpretation of speeches delivered in the other languages. The final text will be printed in the Official Records of the Security Council. Corrections should be submitted to the original languages only. They should be incorporated in a copy of the record and sent under the signature of a member of the delegation concerned to the Chief of the Verbatim Reporting Service, room U-506.
