  • Turkey ıs bordered by: Bulgarıa to the northwest; Greece to the west; Georgia to the northeast; Armenia, Azerbaıjan and İran to the east; and Iraq and Syria to the southeast.

  • Turkey has also fostered close cultural, polıtıcal, economic and industrıal relatıons wıth the Middle East.
  • Turkey's locatıon at the crossroads of Europe and Asıa makes it a country of signifıcant geostrategıc ımportance.
