The UN General Assembly unanimously approved a resolution Wednesday admitting the newly independent Republic of Montenegro as the 192nd member of the United Nations. General Assembly President Jan Eliasson called for approval of the resolution by acclamation and when there was no objection he banged the gaval and said: "I declare the Republic of Montenegro admitted to membership in the United Nations." Diplomats from many of the 191 other UN members seated in the General Assembly hall then burst into applause. Montenegro's admission to the United Nations came just over a month after citizens of the tiny Balkan nation voted for independence from Serbia by a slim margin. That referendum on May 21 was followed by an official declaration of independence from Serbia on June 3.
