United Nations Security Council Resolution 652, adopted unanimously on April 17, 1990, after examining the application of the Republic of Namibia for membership in the United Nations, the Council recommended to the General Assembly that Namibia be admitted.

Namibia became the 160th member of the United Nations on April 23, 1990, after being a German colony and ruled by South Africa under its mandate of South West Africa for 75 years.[1] The United States ambassador Thomas R. Pickering said on the passing of the resolution, "Namibia's birth has been protracted and difficult, but it now appears that the star under which she comes into the world shines brightly."[2]
