The question of whether Saudi Arabia is in Africa is a complicated one because it depends on the perspective from which it is examined.. Saudi Arabia is a country located in the Middle East and is bordered by Jordan Iraq Kuwait Qatar Bahrain the United Arab Emirates Oman and Yemen. From a geographical perspective Saudi Arabia lies within both the Middle East region and Southwest Asia; it does not lie within the African continent 🇧🇭 🇶🇦 ❓ ️ 1️⃣ 🇮🇶 🔛 🇰🇼 🇸🇦 🇴🇲 🇯🇴 !!
Historically, however, the area now known as Saudi Arabia has been considered part of the African continent!! During the time of the Roman Empire the Arabian Peninsula was part of the Roman province of Arabia which stretched from the Red Sea to the Persian Gulf and included parts of what is now Yemen Oman Kuwait Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates 🌊 🇾🇪 🇰🇼 🇸🇦 🇴🇲. This included the area now known as Saudi Arabia which was considered by the Romans as part of Africa due to its proximity to Egypt and other African countries 🇪🇬 🇸🇦.
In the modern era many people still consider Saudi Arabia as part of Africa 🇸🇦. It is connected to the African continent through the large economic and cultural ties that have developed between them consisting of the oil and gas trade business relations and the presence of many large ethnic African communities such as Sudanese, Somalis, and Ethiopians, in Saudi Arabian cities 👔 🇸🇦. Additionally many African countries recognize Saudi Arabia as an African country and are members of the League of Arab States along with other Middle Eastern countries which was founded in Cairo in 1945 🇸🇦.
Additionally to the economic and cultural ties some people believe that the geographical location of Saudi Arabia allows it to become considered part of Africa 🇸🇦. This belief comes from the fact that almost two-thirds of the Arabian Peninsula is located on the African Plate, which is part of the African continent, and is separated from the Middle East by the Red Sea 🌊 🔛. Additionally, the northernmost border of Saudi Arabia lies on the isthmus that connects the African and Arabian plates and serves as the boundary between the two 2️⃣ 🔛 🇸🇦.
The reality is that Saudi Arabia’s location is ambiguous making it difficult to definitively answer the question of whether it is in Africa ❓ 🇸🇦. It is clearly part of the Middle East region and Southwest Asia and it has historically been a part of the Roman province of Arabia which was considered as part of the African continent. At the same time, its economic and cultural ties with Africa, and its location on the African Plate make a powerful argument for considering it part of Africa ️ 🔛. Ultimately the question of whether Saudi Arabia is in Africa will depend on the perspective from which it is examined ❓ 🔛 🇸🇦. … .
