On September 22

On this day in ...
... 1992, in A/RES/47/1, the U.N. General Assembly voted to exclude the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia -- by then, comprising only Serbia (including Kosovo) and Montenegro -- from automatic continuance of the Yugoslavia seat in the United Nations. It thus required the entity to reapply for U.N. membership, and barred it from participation in General Assembly (right) business pending acceptance of that application. (photo credit) The decision came amid the 1990s Balkans Wars and days after the issuance of Security Council Resolution 777, in which the Council declared that "the state formerly known as the Socialist Republic of Yugoslavia has ceased to exist."
