I move:

That the Senate—

  (a)   notes the Speaker of the Southern Sudan Legislative Assembly, the Right Honourable James Wani Igga, announced the Declaration of Independence Act for South Sudan on 9 July 2011; and

  (b)   congratulates the world's newest state, the Republic of South Sudan, on its 1st anniversary on 9 July 2012.

Question agreed to.
