According to the United Nations Charter, Chapter 2, Article 4, the admission of any state to membership in the UN "will be effected by a decision of the General Assembly upon the recommendation of the Security Council."[1] In principle, only sovereign states can become UN members, and today all UN members are fully sovereign states. However, four of the original members (Belarus, India, the Philippines, and Ukraine) were not independent at the time of their admission. Moreover, because a state can only be admitted by the approval of the Security Council and the General Assembly, some entities which may be considered sovereign states according to the Montevideo Convention are not members due to the facts that the UN do not consider them to be sovereign states, the lack of international recognition or opposition from certain members.

The members are listed below by alphabetical order in their short-form English names, with their respective dates of admission. There were 51 original members of the UN which were admitted in 1945, of which 49 are either still in the organization or had their seats taken by a successor state (e.g., the USSR's seat was succeeded by Russia). The other two original members were Czechoslovakia and Yugoslavia, as both had dissolved and their seats were not succeeded by any state (see Former members: Czechoslovakia and Former members: Yugoslavia respectively). For China's seat in the UN, the Republic of China was replaced by the People's Republic of China on 25 October 1971, even though the governments of both have existed well before and after this date (see Seat of China).

Seat of China

China, represented by the government of the Republic of China (ROC), was one of the five original founders of the UN in 1945 and joined the UN as an original member on 24 October 1945. However, as a result of the Chinese Civil War, the Kuomintang-controlled ROC government fled to Taiwan in 1949, with the Communist government of the People's Republic of China (PRC), declared on 1 October 1949, taking control of most of the territory of China. Representatives of the ROC government continued to represent China at the UN, despite the small size of the ROC's jurisdiction of Taiwan (and other islands not considered part of Taiwan Province) compared to the PRC's jurisdiction of mainland China, until 25 October 1971, when General Assembly resolution 2758 was passed, recognising the PRC government as the only legitimate representative of China at the UN, and expelling the representatives of the Chiang Kai-shek-led ROC government from the UN. This effectively transferred the seat of China in the UN (including its permanent seat on the Security Council) from the ROC to the PRC.

Bids for membership by Taiwan

Since 1991, the Republic of China has repeatedly petitioned to rejoin the UN, as the representative of the people of Taiwan only, instead of all of China, using the designation "Republic of China on Taiwan", "Republic of China (Taiwan)", or just "Taiwan" (as proposed by the current Democratic Progressive Party government). However, all attempts have been denied, either because the petition failed to get sufficient votes to get on the formal agenda, or because the application was rejected by the UN, due primarily to the opposition of the People's Republic of China. The ROC has also been denied participation in the UN as an "observer state", a position held by the Holy See, or as a "non-member entity", a title currently granted to Palestine (see Observers and non-members).[citation needed] The Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) (Traditional Chinese: ; Simplified Chinese: ; abbreviated to or ; Hanyu Pinyin: MínjìndÇŽng) is a major political party in the Republic of China which has traditionally been associated with the pan-green coalition and Taiwan independence although it has moderated its stance as it has...

In July 2007, the current Chen Shui-bian-led ROC government submitted the ROC's 15th application to join the UN, and its first under the name "Taiwan", but its application was rejected by the UN Office of Legal Affairs, citing General Assembly resolution 2758.[31] Responding to the application, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon stated that: Chen Shui-bian, President of the Republic of China Chen Shui-bian (ch. ...

With the understanding of the Governor and the Chairman, I will briefly mention that membership into the UN ultimately needs to be decided by the Member States of the United Nations. Membership is given to a sovereign country. The position of the United Nations is that the People's Republic of China is representing the whole of China as the sole and legitimate representative Government of China. The decision until now about the wish of the people in Taiwan to join the United Nations has been decided on that basis. The resolution (General Assembly resolution 2758) that you just mentioned is clearly mentioning that the Government of China is the sole and legitimate Government and the position of the United Nations is that Taiwan is part of China.[32]

Responding to the UN's rejection of its application, the ROC government has stated that Taiwan is not now nor has it ever been under the jurisdiction of the PRC, and that since General Assembly resolution 2758 did not clarify the issue of Taiwan's representation in the UN, it does not prevent Taiwan's participation in the UN as an independent sovereign nation. The ROC government, as well as several international newspapers such as the Wall Street Journal,[33] also criticized Ban for returning the application without passing it to the Security Council or the General Assembly, contrary to UN's standard procedure (Provisional Rules of Procedure of the Security Council, Chapter X, Rule 59),[34] and for asserting that Taiwan is part of China.[35] On the other hand, the PRC government, which has stated that Taiwan is part of China, praised that UN's decision "was made in accordance with the UN Charter and Resolution 2758 of the UN General Assembly, and showed the UN and its member states' universal adherence to the one-China principle."[36] While the PRC government firmly opposes the application of any Taiwan authorities to join the UN or any of its agencies, such as the World Health Organization, the ROC government continues to call on the international community to recognize the right of the island's 23 million citizens to participate in the meetings and activities of the UN and its affiliates. Currently, 23 UN member states and the Holy See maintain diplomatic relations with the ROC. The One-China policy (Traditional Chinese: 一個中國; Simplified Chinese: 一个中国; pinyin: yī gè Zhōngguó) is a principle that there is one China and that mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan are all part of that China. ... “WHO” redirects here. ...

Observers and non-members

In addition to the member states discussed above, there is one non-member observer state, the Holy See (which holds sovereignty over the state of Vatican City). It has been a permanent observer state since 6 April 1964. Non-member observer states are recognized as sovereign entities, and are free to submit a petition to join as a full member at their discretion. For example, Switzerland was also a permanent observer state from 1948 to 2002, until becoming a full member on 10 September 2002. In addition to the current 191 member states, the United Nations welcomes several other international agencies, entities, and one non-member state (for several years prior to their admission after a referendum in 2002, Switzerland was also an observer state). ... is the 96th day of the year (97th in leap years) in the Gregorian calendar. ...

The Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) was granted observer status by General Assembly resolution 3237 on 22 November 1974. After the proclaimed declaration of the State of Palestine by the PLO, its designation in the UN was changed to Palestine by General Assembly resolution A/RES/43/177 on 15 December 1988. Palestine's status in the UN is "a non-member entity".
