These 3 countries are in Africa. And this is Papua New Guinea. Many people must be confused about which Guinea is where. So Guinea is the traditional name of the coastal region of West Africa where the Gulf of Guinea is located. So the
other 3 African countries are located in the Gulf of Guinea. So their name is Guinea. So when the European explorers reached this island for the first time, this region where Papua New Guinea is located, they saw that the people here are very similar. They look exactly like what they saw in the Guinea region of Africa.
The color is the same. Their hair is also curly. So they named this area, this region, this island, Guinea. And Papua was already their old name. After that, the name of this region, this country was given. Papua New Guinea.
