Adoption of the agenda
Admission of new Members
Note by the Secretary-General (S/1999/793)
The Security Council will now begin its consideration of the item on its agenda. The Security Council is meeting in accordance with the understanding reached in its prior consultations.
By a note dated 16 July 1999, document S/1999/793, the Secretary-General circulated the application of the Kingdom of Tonga for admission to membership in the United Nations, contained in a letter dated 8 July 1999 from the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Defence of the Kingdom of Tonga addressed to the Secretary-General.
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 the Kingdom of Tonga to the Committee on the Admission of New Members for examination and report.
There being no objection, it is so decided.
The Committee on the Admission of New Members will meet on Monday, 26 July 1999, at 3.30 p.m., in Conference Room 7.
The Security Council has completed its business for this meeting.
Members of the Council are invited to join me in the Security Council Consultation Room for the scheduled consultations.
