Notes [ edit ]

  1. ^ Like the District of Columbia, incorporated territories are officially integral parts of the United States, unlike unincorporated territories which are mere possessions or appurtenances, according to the United States Supreme Court, so the incorporated U.S. Territory of Palmyra Island is technically the southernmost part of the United States of America. See the Insular Cases.
  2. ^ The Stewart Islands (now called Sikaiana) were ceded to the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1856 and later included in the Republic of Hawaii, which was annexed by the United States in 1900 as the Territory of Hawaii, an incorporated territory. The Solomon Islands currently exercises de facto sovereignty over Sikaiana, but the natives have claimed that it is legally a territory of the United States as the successor of the Kingdom of Hawaii. The issue has not been litigated, but if so, then Sikaiana, at 8°22′43″ South latitude, would be an incorporated territory farther south than U.S. Territory of Palmyra Island and thus technically the southernmost part of the United States of America.
  3. ^ 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.
  4. ^ 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 2013 Brussels Agreement. Kosovo has been recognized as an independent state by 112 out of 193 United Nations member states, while 12 states have recognized Kosovo only to later withdraw their recognition.
