Reliable presentation of the subject of Africa region in international relations is not possible without addressing the key issues associated with its past and history right after the World War II. Initiated then decolonization brought a fundamental change in the geopolitical map of African continent. The United Kingdom, France, Portugal, Belgium, Italy and Spain have lost their dependent territories, in the place which were formed 50 sovereign States. The new formed States began the process of shaping own national identity and places in international relations.
