Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Sudan occupies an area internationally regarded as part of South Sudan around the town of Kafia Kingi. The second listing for Sudan is the southernmost point of the internationally recognised border.
  2. ^ Kosovo is the subject of a territorial dispute between the Republic of Kosovo and the Republic of Serbia. The Republic of Kosovo unilaterally declared independence on 17 February 2008, but Serbia continues to claim it as part of its own sovereign territory. The two governments began to normalise relations in 2013, as part of the Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has received recognition as an independent state from 110 out of 193 United Nations member states.
