No it's not. The general divide between Asia and Europe goes between Turkey and Greece. Cyprus is geographically part of Asia. Politicaly and culturewise it's part of Europe, without doubt.

Regarding the argument about where Cyprus is located and whether or not it is part of Europe because of its membership in the European Union. Personally, I believe that if Malta is in Europe then so is Cyprus. However, that it is in the European Union is not a valid argument. The countries of Aruba, Curacao and Sint Maarten, because of their being members of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, are all part of the European Union, but they are PHYSICALLY located in the Caribbean!

SInce when was Cyprus not in Europe? This is all recent stuff and I have seen it only here. Everyone else says it is in Europe. The dividing line is Istanbul, and the Ural mountains and river - period. Hate these dumb academic exercises. I have been there, they are Europeans.

Isn't Singapore linked to Indonesia. If so, it should not be co sidered an island for thr very definition of island is "a portion of land surrounded by sea in all directions".

Well, I agree with CartoJuggernaut, silly Europe thinking it's a separate continent. I'm interested to know whether you all think Rhodes is a part of Europe or Asia? It's in Greece (at the moment) but clearly closer to the Asian mainland...

I've been to Rhodes but I wouldn't say I've been to Asia. Rhodes is definitely part of Greece. You may be able to see the Turkish coastline from Rhodes City on a clear day but that's it. I mean you can see Asia from the European side of Istanbul, too. I'm not sure where exactly the border of Europe/Asia lies on the water but probably somewhere around the edge of the Agean Sea and the Levantine Sea which places Rhodes in Europe and Cyprus in Asia GEOGRAPHICALLY.

guys...Cyprus isn't included in the EU. Cyprus is also closer to Asian Turkey, Lebanon, Israel and Syria than it is to Greece... to be brief on the Cyprus debate... (in my opinion, Cyprus is European as Cypriots are ethically from Greece or UK, its for debate though...)

IS this for real? Politically and Culturally, Cyprus identifies more with Europe, in terms of geography and its location, it is in Asia. There shouldn't be a big argument. As for northern cyprus, Only Turkey recognizes it and it doesn't receive any international support. But anyways, Cyprus is in Asia in terms for location, even though in EU, and if it wasn't for greece cyprus wouldn't be in EU
