UNITED NATIONS, July 14 (Xinhua) — The U.N. General Assembly Thursday unanimously approved a resolution admitting the newly independent Republic of South Sudan as the 193rd members of the United Nations.

The African country declared independence last Saturday in its capital Juba. Its independence is the result of the January 2011 referendum held under the terms of the 2005 Comprehensive Peace Agreement (CPA) that ended the decades-long civil war between the North and the South.
