Western Sahara – Northwest Africa

Western Sahara is a territory of 266 thousand km² in northwest Africa, with a coastline of 1,110 km bathed by the Atlantic Ocean. In the Middle Ages, this territory was occupied by Arab Bedouins. In the 15th century, its coastline was explored by the Portuguese. In 1434, the Portuguese navigator Gil Eanes rounded Cape Bojador (Boujdour), a landmark in the Portuguese exploration of the African coast.

In 1884, this territory became part of the old Spanish possessions of Western Sahara. In 1976, Spain withdrew from the territory. In the same year, two thirds of the territory was annexed by Morocco and the rest in 1979.

Since the 1960s, there has been a movement for the liberation of the Sahara, which in 1973 took the name Polisario Front (Popular Front for Liberation of Saguía el Hamra y Río de Oro). This movement adopted guerrilla tactics, which ended in 1991 with a ceasefire negotiated with the participation of the UN. As part of the peace process, a referendum should be held to decide on the independence of Western Sahara or its annexation to Morocco. But no agreement has yet been reached on the conditions of such a referendum.

Currently, a strip in the interior of Western Sahara, with about 20% of the territory, is dominated by the Polisario Front, with the denomination of Democratic Arab Saharawi Republic.

Countries of the World

According to the United Nations (UN), the world is made up of 193 countries. As such, it does not recognize Taiwan, the Vatican and Palestine as “observer states”. Thus, to be considered a country, it has to unite characteristics such as national sovereignty, well-defined borders and even a currency.

However, there are all nations in the world that present other numbers in relation to the number of countries that exist in the world. The International Olympic Committee establishes 206 countries, and FIFA 209. Check out the countries of each continent:

  • Asia has 47 countries and 3 territories of national sovereignty
  • America has 35 countries and 20 territories of national sovereignty.
  • Africa has 54 countries and 4 territories of national sovereignty
  • Europe has 43 countries and 10 territories of national sovereignty.
  • Oceania has 14 countries and 11 territories of national sovereignty.

Note: Despite being considered a continent, Antarctica does not contain any countries.
