Coastal countries with no islands

A few countries have only one island, but some have none at all. How many can you name?
Answers are countries with no islands off their coasts, i.e. inland river and lake islands or metaphorical islands don't count.
Islands do not have to be inhabited but must not shared by more than one country.
Quite a few countries come very close with only one island or just two, such as Timor-Leste, Brunei, Kazakhstan and Lithuania.

Israel has 5 islands in the Mediterranean named Achziv, Sgavion, Shahaf, Nahalieli and T'chelet, and the city of Banjul is on an semi-fluvial island, so it sort of counts but it's not strictly a sea island :-) Hope you enjoyed the quiz.

Great quiz, but Latvia should be added. None of its islands are in the sea.
