Saudi Arabia, and the Arabian peninsula, are considered part of Asia, to which the peninsula is directly connected. Being the southwest section, it is the closest part of the Asian continent to Africa. The countries around Saudi Arabia are known as the Middle East and share a geopolitical history with Egypt and the Mediterranean Sea.

Some maps twenty to thirty years ago classified Saudi Arabia as part of Africa, as were the Sinai Peninsula and the countries north of the Red Sea. The division is not geographically clear-cut, nor is the division of Eurasia into Europe and Asia. However, nobody makes the assertion that Saudi Arabia is part of Africa as of 2012.
