Guinea and Guinea-Bissau to join Miss World 2013

The African nations of GUINEA and GUINEA-BISSAU are set to debut at Miss World 2013 in Bogor, Indonesia on September 28.
Guinea and Guinea-Bissau are neighboring nations located in West Africa. Guinea has cultural ties with France and was known as French Guinea until their independence in 1958. Guinea-Bissau has cultural ties with Portugal and was known as Portuguese Guinea until their independence in 1974.
Guinea-Bissau added the name of their capital Bissau to the official name of the nation in order to distinguish themselves from Guinea and Equatorial Guinea.
