Middle East

The Middle East, as a region, is not a fixed entity. Aside from the immediate area around the Arabian Peninsula, the Middle East usually includes Egypt, Turkey and Iran. Sometimes it also includes Sudan, Afghanistan, Pakistan and even the Maghrib countries of North Africa at which point it is referred to as the “Greater Middle East.”
The term “Middle East”, popularized around 1900 in the United Kingdom, reflects the geographical position of the region as viewed from a European perspective.
