Its small part is in Europe and other part is in Asia, so Turkey can be called a Eurasian country.
Geographically, if United Kingdom is in the center of the world, maybe can be said Turkey is a part of Middle East , but not Arabic or Islamic country like most other Middle Easy countries.
Culturally, Turkey totally belongs to Europe. Istanbul is a part of Europe. Its history, the empires on it, buildings; a lot of things show this.
Nowadays, Turkey is trying to take the leadership of MiddleEast andgetting stronger against Israel and more, thinking of to end the occupation to Palastine.
And one day, Turkey will be called as Turkiye. Not this word.
Turkey will be a part of European Union next year.
