Officially the Republic of Iraq is a country in Western Asia. The country borders Turkey to the north, Iran to the east, Kuwait to the Southeast, Saudi Arabia to the south, Jordan to the Southwest, and Syria to the west. The southern part of Iraq is within the Arabian Peninsula. The capital, Baghdad, is in the centre of the country and is the largest city. Iraq is a triangle of mountains, desert, and fertile river valleys. The country has arid desert land west of the Euphrates, a broad central valley between the Euphrates and the Tigris, and mountains in the Northeast. From earliest times Iraq was known as Mesopotamia ‘the land between the rivers’, for it embraces a large part of the alluvial plains of the Tigris and Euphrates rivers.
