South Sudanís new flag raised at the UN HQ

Ethiopia , Eritrea and Somalia urged to resolve differences peacefully:

UNITED NATIONS: South Sudan became the 193rd member of the United Nations Thursday when the U.N. General Assembly approved the countryís membership by acclamation. South Sudanís new flag was raised for the first time outside United Nations headquarters in a brief ceremony symbolizing the countryís U.N. membership that was acclaimed just over an hour earlier by the General Assembly.

Riek Machar, South Sudanís Vice President, appeared before the applauding General Assembly to express what he described as the profound gratitude of the people and government of South Sudan. Machar said it is South Sudanís deepest and most sincere wish to peacefully resolve all outstanding matters between South Sudan and Sudan, from which it separated. We do not harbor bitterness, he said, with our former compatriots. He added that after many years of war, South Sudan wants to be a force for peace in its region.

ďWith this in mind, we urge our brothers in Ethiopia and Eritrea to resolve their differences peacefully and amicably. We appeal to our brothers and sisters in Somalia to seek lasting peace and we salute all those who are working to build democracy and the rule of law from the ground up.

We encourage all countries in the region to come together to eradicate the scourge of the Lordís Resistance Army. Voice of America
