On June 28

On this day in ...
... 2006 (5 years ago today), the General Assembly adopted A/RES/60/264, by which it admitted the 192d U.N. member state, thus agreeing with a Security Council vote taken 6 days earlier. The newest state -- and to date, the last to enter the United Nations -- was the Republic of Montenegro, which for many years had composed part of Yugoslavia. (map credit; flag credit)
