stay on track pplz
You're arguing that the northern part, belonging to the mostly-Asian Turkey should be counted as Europe, while the southern majority, more closely tied to European Greece should be counted as Asian?
And hes right about Caucasus states and Kazakhstan, in Europe they are considered as europeans. But not in usa, and you know, what a merican says, thats right, they are the best in this world and they know everything.
The distance between the two meridians is roughly only 1,000 km at Kirkenes latitude, but it's more than 2,700 km at Cairo latitude.
A Mercator projection (or on any map) will always hold that kind of pitfalls. The furthest we go towards the poles, the most the notion of East and West becomes irrelevant.
I completely agree that these shouldn't be considered European for other purposes, but they still have territory in Europe.
Based on this, if Turkey (why not) than Kazakhstan / Georgia / Azerbaijan are Europe too. Partly. Armenia not.
Something have to be corrected.
