United Nations Security Council resolution 1290, adopted on 17 February 2000, after examining the application of Tuvalu for membership in the United Nations, the Council recommended to the General Assembly that Tuvalu be admitted, bringing total membership of the United Nations to 189.[1]

Resolution 1290 was adopted by 14 votes to none against and one abstention from China which said it could not support the recommendation (due to Tuvalu's close diplomatic ties to Taiwan) but would not veto it in the interests of the people of both countries.[2]
