Interesting What Is Bir Tawil? Video | A Stretch Of Land No Country Wants To Claim

25 sec read

You probably haven’t heard of it before, but there’s a stretch of land called Bir Tawil. The odd thing about Bir Tawil is that no country wants to claim ownership. Here’s why…

As the Map Men explain in this video, Bir Tawil is a disputed strip of land which either belongs to Egypt or Sudan. Probably.

Bir Tawil is the size of London, and yet neither country wants it. Why? Because if they admit to owning Bir Tawil, they’ll be losing their claim over The Hala’ib Triangle, which is much more desirable.

The British are to blame, as usual, as they created the two borders. Which led directly to Bir Tawil being unwanted for over 100 years and counting.
