Probably you should add Cyprus, because the northern part of the island is turkish, or under turkish dominion. But it was fun!

Plattitude is right. The Nakhchivan exclave of Azerbaijan is southwest of Armenia. It has a tiny border with Turkey at the Aras River.

well Cyprus does border Northern Cyprus which is basically an extension of Turkey. Convenient place for them to keep most of their casinos and brothels.

But Northern Cyprus declared independence. It's not like it became a province of Turkey.

Quizzes would become awfully complicated if we included all cases like this. Of course de facto Northern Cyprus is very closely linked to Turkey, but nobody recognizes it as such, not even themselves. The same with Abkhazia, South Ossetia, Nagorno Karabakh, but unlike Crimea for example.

Gamer: that's not really what happened, though. In the 1970s Greek partisans attempted to annex Cyprus to Greece. In response, Turkey invaded Northern Cyprus and expelled Greeks from that part of the island. Currently, Turkey is the *only* country in the world that recognizes Northern Cyprus. The "country" is entirely dependent on Turkey for its economy and military and is essentially a puppet satellite state of Turkey. The United Nations considers Northern Cyprus to be a part of the Republic of Cyprus under Turkish occupation.

@kalbahamut, you are giving wrong and false information. Yes, Northern Cyprus is economically (almost) dependent to Turkey, but it isn’t a province, dependency etc. of Turkey. Turkey recognises Northern Cyprus as a country, not a dependency. And also UN doesn’t consider Northern Cyprus as a part of Turkey. And Northern Cyprus is not under the occupation of Turkey. Even some Northern Cypriots hate Turkey. UN considers Northern Cyprus as an unrecognised state, part of Republic of Cyprus.

(Extra information: There is a United Nations Buffer Zone between “two Cyprus”.)

Sonko, I wonder what Kalbahamut's problem is with you. In almost every quiz that you have created he is criticising you and the quiz. Vreselijk kinderachtig als je het mij vraagt.

Level 63
Dec 4, 2016
What do you mean "every quiz"? Kal has commented on 4 quizzes out of 21 Sonko has created. That's 19% of all his quizzes, so no Kalbahamut hasn't commented on 'almost all of Sonko's quizzes'. Unless commenting on 4 quizzes equals 'almost all of Sonko's quizzes', which then seems quite ridiculous.

Sonko and Jordaan. I agree with Gamer 1162, Kalbahamut frequently comments and comments... and comments. But that is NOT the case in this instance. As much as I often disagree with him, it is unfair to attribute to him something which he has not done. Also, it is impolite

to have an exchange in a language other than that of the quiz. (Dutch is one of the languages I speak, so I understood your exchange with each other).

I haven't seen a single comment of his on this quiz that criticizes either the quiz or the quiz creator. Unless it was already removed in the time since you've left this comment, but even then, I highly doubt he would make a criticism without a given reason.

@sonko don't get offended, this is not critisism towards you, but to the Quizmaster

what i want to say is, that i cannot fully understand how so many boring quizzes can be featured, where you only need to know the locations of huge countries on the world map, yet great quizzes, I'm not saying mine are so brill, but there are definitely some that are more engaging than well quizzes like this one or basically all of Jerry928's quizzes, which are simply the closest countries to every damn country on the planet

Fair point, I totally get what you're saying. There's definitely more engaging quizzes than this one.

I do think that most people here tend to prefer simple and country related quizes.The Quizmaster simply features what the masses want.

Even though they have had a lot of complicated relations historically and practice different religions, Turks and Greeks seem to have a lot in common culturally (personally, it seems similar to the relationship between India and Pakistan). I also read a comment from Kalbahamut on another quiz that Turks, Greeks, and Slavs have all intermarried for generations, leading to genetic similarities in the region as well.

That’s not quite entirely accurate, unfortunately. Azerbaijani *is* written using the Latin script (at least, it is in Azerbaijan itself!).

All the rest is entirely accurate, though.
