Central African Republic–Republic of the Congo

The land boundary between Central African Republic and Republic of the Congo was originally established as a French colonial administrative unit. Its delimitation changed locations multiple times in the 20th century, and upon independence, both States acquiesced to the colonial boundary as an international frontier. It runs for almost 500 km, mostly along the watershed dividing the Ibenga and Lobaye River basins. It may have received a partial demarcation by colonial authorities, but no modern demarcation work has occurred. Despite its somewhat vague delimitation, Central African Republic and Republic of the Congo do not dispute the alignment of their boundary.
