Adoption of the agenda
Admission of new Members
Note by the Secretary-General (S/2002/801)
The Security Council will now begin its consideration of the item on its agenda.
In a letter dated 20 June 2002 addressed to the Secretary-General, the President and the Chancellor of the Swiss Confederation submitted the application of their country for membership in the United Nations. That letter has been circulated in document S/2002/801.
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 Swiss Confederation 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 at 11 o’clock this morning, in Conference Room 7, to consider the application of the Swiss Confederation for membership in the United Nations.
