Actually the remark about Europe is correct ... geologically we should talk about "Eurasia", looking at the macro tectonic plates.

The interesting aspect of the geological perspective is that India is with Australia while Arabia is alone ...

P.S. the extreme East of Russia is with America, geologically.
