NPOV[edit]

This article badly needs some NPOV and a more moderate tone (go easy on the bold text!). Could the original author(s) clarify/provide specific examples? For instance, what "western media" are you talking about? Also, do avoid labelling and generalising: for instance "Americans/Westerners make such mistakes..."

Remove Russian-centric pov on this article. It should only provide simple overview on geographic, history, and related matters. Durianlover1 (talk) 03:58, 27 May 2013 (UTC)

at present it just says that North Asia is essentially identical with Siberia. We don't need an article for that, it should just be merged into Siberia. 130.60.142.65 06:41, 28 October 2005 (UTC)

I concur; this article need not exist, as the term is little-used (if at all). Merge with Siberia. Adso de Fimnu 05:48, 23 November 2005 (UTC)

Search on "north asia" shows the term has wildly different definitions, many of which do not contain Siberia at all.

United Nations geoscheme does not include a North Asia.

The most accurate thing to say about "North Asia" would be that it does not have a generally accepted definition, and is only used when it is arbitrarily defined for convenience, from various incompatible viewpoints. --JWB (talk) 14:03, 3 January 2008 (UTC)
