The Answer:

And, the answer for the the question is :

Congo and Democratic Republic of the Congo

Explanation:

[STC001083] Kinshasa, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, is located just over three kilometers (just under two miles) to the west of Brazzaville, the capital city of the Republic of the Congo. The combined population of the two megalopolises is close to 20 million people. Surprisingly, they aren’t connected by bridge (though the possibility of one has long been discussed), so most residents travel between the two cities by ferry or speedboat. A flight that takes only five minutes and departs three times a week between the two cities’ capitals is also available. Even while Rome and Vatican City might be the first ones that come to mind when thinking of the nearest capitals, Vatican City is actually a city-state and does not have a true capital. Of the approximately 200 national capitals around the globe, the furthest apart are Canberra, Australia, and Wellington, New Zealand — separated by approximately 1,400 miles.
