Foreign relations of Namibia

Namibia follows a largely independent foreign policy, with lingering affiliations with states that aided the independence struggle, including Libya and Cuba.

With a small army and a fragile economy, the Namibian Government's principal foreign policy concern is developing strengthened ties within the Southern African[?] region. A dynamic member of the Southern African Development Community[?], Namibia is a vocal advocate for greater regional integration.

Namibia became the 160th member of the United Nations on April 23, 1990, and the 50th member of the British Commonwealth upon independence.

Disputes - international: dispute with Botswana over uninhabited Kasikili (Sidudu) Island[?] in Linyanti (Chobe) River[?] resolved by the ICJ in favor of Botswana (13 December 1999); at least one other island in Linyanti River is contested
