The UN General Assembly has admitted South Sudan as the 193rd member of the United Nations.

The vote followed the African country's achievement of independence on Saturday, breaking away from Sudan after more than 50 years of on-and-off war.

"I declare South Sudan a member of the United Nations," Joseph Deiss, president of the General Assembly, said after Thursday's vote.

The independence declaration for the world's newest state followed a January referendum in which southerners voted to secede from the north.
