Defining Europe

Carl Bildt has some thoughts about the task facing the EU when it comes to the question of deciding where the borders of Europe are. After looking at Russia and Belarus, Bildt continues:
That really takes us down to Caucasus, and here I agree that it becomes somewhat tricky. The classical boundary of Europe was seen as running along the Caucasus mountain ridge, and Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan are clearly beyond this.

This we can debate for a long time.
