Northern Ireland is a territory governed under an international accord. This is a relatively rare situation that means sovereignty is more complicated in NI that in most other parts of Europe, so it's included in a distinct list. Fitnr 21:38, 9 September 2015 (UTC)
Wikipedia articles are not necessarily reliable as sources - not least because they are sometimes hijacked by special interest groups. You need to look at reliable sources. For example, [www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-17398605 this BBC article] stated that Armenia is in Europe.-- Toddy1(talk) 09:28, 11 October 2015 (UTC)
I was perusing this page and noticed the entry on Kosovo contained a biased, incorrect and poorly written statement, that Serbia "along with the rest of UN members..." considers Kosovo a breakaway province. Not only is the English poor for its lack of a definite article before "UN" but it is completely untrue that the entirety of the UN considers Kosovo a province of Serbia. I surmise, based on the telltale Slavicism of the omitted def. article and the national bias that the author of the statement was a Serb who was operating on incorrect information.
