Finnish or Turkish

Went last year December to a party of the Finnish General Consulate.
Lots of people. The interesting thing was the mixture of the faces: a lot of people there from Finland with the same Asian expression as here in Turkey.
They say that Turkey doesn't belong to the Middle East (right!) not to Asia (although their roots are from Mongolia and NW China) not to Africa (absolutely right!) but also not Europe...
Still confused after 2 1/2 years in Turkey...
Has Turkey the same (strategic) position as Finland, which looks like sandwiched between Europe and Russia?
Anyway, in 10 years we will know more...
