I was asked today why I list Georgia, Armenia, and Azerbaijan as Asian countries
while some other websites list them as European countries
. My answer was as follows... "There’s no official definition of the boundary between Asia and Europe (nor between any continent
for that matter) so the boundaries are merely traditional. The Caucasus Mountains have traditionally divided the two continents and these three countries are to the south of that boundary. I also feel that it is more appropriate to place these countries in Asia because all of Turkey east of Istanbul is customarily considered Asia and certainly their neighbor to the south, Iran, is an Asian country."
