UNITED NATIONS - The Security Council formally recommended on Wednesday that newly independent South Sudan be admitted as a member of the United Nations.

The General Assembly is expected to vote on Thursday to make the new African country the 193rd UN member.

The council's recommendation came in a resolution adopted without a vote by the 15-nation body.

South Sudan became independent on Saturday after its people voted for secession in a January referendum, under the terms of a 2005 peace deal that ended a 20-year war between north and south Sudan.
