Let’s Begin

Lesotho is a very special country. Only two more countries exist like this in the world at present. It is one of only three Independent countries completely surrounded by the territory of another country. It is South Africa that surrounds this Kingdom. In short, this country is situated inside South Africa. The surprise element does not end here. It is just a beginning.

This is a small kingdom. It is just a little more than 11, 580 sq mi. This former British colony has all the prime characteristics of a typical ex-British colony. It is moderately populated, with a population of over 2 million people.

The Strength

Even though it is not a big country, it gives enormous importance to its internal and external security. It is a member of the Commonwealth of Nations, the Southern African Development Community, the African Union, the Non-Aligned Movement, and the United Nations. It maintains cordial relations with its only neighbour South Africa. It is also closely connected to several western countries such as Germany and France. Apart from these countries, it works closely with its former master Briton.
