Debate Field

This blog post is a platform for people to argue about where Cyprus is, Asia or Europe. I'll say it's in Asia, along with 50% of other JetPunk users. Happy (or not) debating!

Cyprus is well within the boundary between Asia and Europe.

The answer is: Asia Cyprus is located on the Asian continent, but its culture and history are mainly European, due to its colonization of Greeks and Turks (part of the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus).

Quite right, MG17. Good to see you're on the Asia Cyprus side. The Cyprus culture is on the european side, but it's located in Asia. :)

I used to think Cyprus was in Europe, but a couple weeks ago i realised that it is actually in Asia.

Geographically I think it’s in Asia but politically, it might be Europe because it’s in the EU

What happen if it is in EU. If Australia will join EU tomorrow, will you consider it European as well?

@ChineseChen it can't be in Europe, organisations aren't bound to geographical locations; that's like saying Switzerland isn't in Europe since it isn't in the EU, and Israel is in Europe because it's part of the European Football League

I think Cyprus should be considered in the Middle East. It’s hard to find a distinct border between Europe and Asia.

The border follows the Ural Mountains, Caucasus Mountains, then just off the south coast of the Black Sea, through the Bosporus and Dardanelles, then cuts across the Mediterranean Sea to include Crete and Malta, then through the Strait of Gibraltar between Spain and Morocco.

From the great WolfCam: "I believe Cyprus is physically in Asia, but emotionally in South America, and spiritually in Oceania"

The closest part of Cyprus to Europe is actually further away than the closet part of the island to the African continent.

So Europe is 3rd in line to claining Cyprus....

There, thats put the cat amongst the pigeons as the saying goes..
