The Turkish Foreign Policy of the Ataturk’s period was shaped within the framework of the sensitivity to keep western imperialist states away from regional problems in order for Turkey and its neighbours to maintain their sovereign political presence. Turkey, in line with this purpose, pioneered alliances that brought to get her the states of theregion, like The Balkan Pact in West and theTreaty of Saadabad in east. The policy that started with the treaty of Saadabad and the Balkan Pact and shaped by the sensitivity of keeping imperialists out of the problems of the region, also enabled Turkey to be prominent as a hegemonicactor in both the Balkans and the Middle East based on the discourse of “Peace at Home, Peace in the World”. Furthermore, both the fact that The Turkish War of Independence was the first national liberation struggle lost by the imperialist western states and the effect created by Turkish modernization without westernization and colonization, led Turkey to receive a global response to the experiment of regional orientation. The years following the Turkish War of Independence witnessed the independence struggles of the geography that Atatürk expressed as “oppressednations”. In this sense, the Turkish War of Independence holds the attribution of being the signal flare of the ideological orientation known as the ‘Third-wordlism’ in litterateur. In this study, Turkish foreign policy during Ataturk’s period is also moved beyond a classical historical reading and discussed in a hypothetical framework within the context of regional and global reaction observed by Kemalist tendencies.
