What country owns South Sudan?
South Sudan is located in Africa and became independent from the neighboring Republic of Sudan, which borders South Sudan to the north, on July 9, 2011. South Sudan is the 54th and thus the youngest state in Africa. It covers an area of 644,329 square kilometers.
The tributary of the Nile called Bahr al-Arab roughly represents the border with northern Sudan in the northwest. However, some areas are controversial, these include, above all, regions where the country’s oil deposits are located.
