There are three types of easts the near, middle, and far

AS far as I know the far east refers to China, the middle east refers to the region from Iran to Egypt and whatever is between them, but which region/s does the 'near east' refer to? Does it refer to Turkey, or Greece, or what?

(be careful, though: they correctly say "E Mediterranean". Spain, France and Italy are "around the Mediterranean", but they're not part of the Middle East because they're around the W Mediterranean)
The Near East a term originally applied to the Balkan states of southeastern Europe, but now generally applied to the countries of southwestern Asia between the Mediterranean Sea and India (including the Middle East), especially in historical contexts.
