The Republic of Turkey or Turkey (Turkish: Türkiye), is a bi-continental country that is located mainly in the Middle East (Southwest Asia) and partly in Southeast Europe; The Anatolian peninsula comprises most (97%) of its territory, and is situated between the Black Sea on the north and the Mediterranean Sea to south and west, with the Aegean Sea (and Marmara Sea) in between. A small portion of Turkey's territory (3%) is situated in south-eastern Europe, west of the Bosphorus straits.
Turkey has two European and six Asian countries as neighbours: Bulgaria and Greece on the west; Georgia, Armenia, Azerbaijan on the northeast; Iran (Persia) on the east; and Iraq and Syria on the south. Since the Republic of Hatay joined Turkey in 1939, the border with Syria has been disputed.
