One of the world's most volatile regions, the traditional definition of the Middle East, which the countries listed down below go by, are the countries of Western Asia that are south of Transcaucasia/the South Caucasus (Georgia, Azerbaijan and Armenia). The Greater Middle East political definition, coined in the Early 2000's by the Bush Administration, throws in North Africa as far west as Morocco as well as Mauritania in West Africa, Somalia and Djibouti in East Africa, and even Afghanistan and Pakistan in South Asia, fitting more closely with [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arab_world Arab World]] and [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Muslim_world Muslim World]] respectively (note that the three terms are technically ''not'' synonymous). Some broader definitions of the Greater Middle East even include Transcaucasia/the South Caucasus and Central Asia. Some definitions of the region don't include Iran in Middle East and some don't include Cyprus and Turkey. Also known as the Near East, mainly in texts originating in Europe (both English and foreign texts), the Middle East is the area around Iran, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan and all those other -stans. And Iraq. This can cause a mess for translators as well. So you always better make sure what the author's definition of the term is and preferably attach your own definition if writing about it yourself.
