--Term applikcability== The term Western Asia is sometimes used in writings about the archeology and the late prehistory of the region, and in the United Nations subregion geoscheme. Unlike the Middle East, which is a vaguely-defined region generally meant to include the North African country of Egypt, Western Asia is a purely geographical term, which includes the southwestern extreme of Asia.
