Lebanon ( Arabicلبنان‎‎ LubnānLebanese pronunciation: [lɪbˈnæːn]FrenchLiban), officially known as the Lebanese Republic[nb 2] (Arabicالجمهورية اللبنانية‎‎ al-Jumhūrīyah al-LubnānīyahLebanese pronunciation: [elˈʒʊmhuːɾɪjje l.ˈlɪbnæːnɪjje]FrenchRépublique libanaise), is a sovereign state in Western Asia. It is bordered by Syria to the north and east and Israel to the south, while Cyprus is west across the Mediterranean Sea. Lebanon’s location at the crossroads of the Mediterranean Basin and the Arabian hinterland facilitated its rich history and shaped a cultural identity of religious and ethnicdiversity.[8] At just 10,452 km2 (4,036 sq. mi.), it is the smallest recognized country on the entire mainland Asian continent.[nb 3][9][10]
