Selected states in Asia, bordering Europe, have also been included.1 The United Nations is a world-wide organisation with members from all continents, not only from Europe.
2 OSCE and NATO are Europe-centric organisations, but have members from other continents too (USA, Canada and Central Asian states).
3 In Andorra and Montenegro the euro is used as a "de facto" currency (without any agreement with the ECB, EU or an Eurozone member state).
4 The euro is used as a "de facto" currency in Kosovo.
5 Switzerland has not signed to EEA, but is participating in EFTA and has some sectoral agreements with the EU with similar effect as EEA.
6 These countries are currently not participating in the EU's single market (EEA), but the EU has common external Customs Union agreements with Turkey (EU-Turkey Customs Union in force since 1995), Andorra (since 1991) and San Marino (since 2002). Monaco participates in the EU customs union through its relationship with France; its ports are administered by the French. Vatican City has a customs union in effect with Italy.
