    Background: The Republic of Cyprus was admitted to the United Nations Organisation by the Security Council sitting in New York Aug 24, Britain's UN representative Harold Beeley proposed the newly independent island republic in conjunction with Ceylon - another former British possession and member of the British Commonwealth.

    Ceylon's representative Mr. Corea spoke of the joint co-operation of Turkey, Greece and Britain in setting up the new republic. He expressed gratitude to Britain for financial aid to the new nation and hoped that the UN would likewise assist Cyprus. He said he was sure Cyprus would help contribute to the well-being of the world now that she was approaching UN membership.

    Cyprus is the 97th member of the UN General Assembly. In recent weeks the African bloc has crept up to a total strength of 23 - the biggest continental group in the Assembly. Another two African members may join during the coming session - Nigeria and Mauritania.
