Turkey

Turkey or officially the Republic of Turkey, is a country whose territory is almost entirely located in Asia (97%) and the remaining 3% - on the Balkan Peninsula in Southeastern Europe, but more than 20% of its population on the Balkan Peninsula. It borders east with Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan and Iran; to the south - with Iraq and Syria; to the west - with the Aegean Sea and the islands in it, Greece and Bulgaria. Turkey's location between Europe and Asia makes it a country of particular geostrategic importance.
