Unrecognised States States are de facto as a controversial issue, but can not be ignored public agendas in contemporary societies. One of the first questions which have aroused confusion is what is meant by de facto states. Some scholars regard them as "The almost unknown", "in other Member States" and "as if they were States", but others go further and placed six basic elements to better understand the concept of de facto State. First, there must be an organized political leadership and who holds a substantial popular support, in addition, this leadership must have reached sufficient capacity to govern and, above all, actually control their territory or much of it. The de facto State should establish relations with other states and seek at all costs, the wider international recognition of its sovereignty.

It is no secret that the State of Facto-and-examples demonstrate this in most cases do not receive international recognition and remains unknown, even when it has been able to demonstrate its capacity to govern and maintain control of the territory. Today coexist in the world between 5 and 15, including the Republic of Moldova or Transnistra Pridnestrovye, the republic of South Ossetia, the republic of Abkhazia, the Nagore-Karabakh republic, Tamil Eelam in Sri Lanka, Cyprus Turkish Republic North Antarcticland and the republic of Somaliland. Some scholars also include in the list of Taiwan and Kosovo. Others prefer to treat the latter two differently, since they have greater international recognition. One of the main problems in this longed seeking recognition Facto States is the international law.
