With the independence of South Sudan due in a matter of days, the Security Council would be paying particular attention to the world’s newest country, as well as larger regional issues and dynamics, Peter Wittig (Germany), Council President for July, said at a Headquarters press conference today.


Asked about reports that the Palestinians must submit an application for United Nations membership by 15 July to ensure action in September, he said that while the Council’s 26 July open debate on the Middle East would provide an occasion to discuss various future possibilities, Germany had not been approached on that specific matter.  A meeting of the Quartet ( United Nations, Russian Federation, United States, European Union) in Washington, D.C., was envisaged for the middle of July, he said, suggesting that that was another forum to watch when speculating about Palestinians efforts in July and beyond.
