Keywords: Foreign Policy, Atatürk, 1920-1938, Turkish Grand National Assembly


Turkish foreign policy during 1920-1938 was initiated, formulated, and directed by Atatürk. The period between 1920-1938 is the first three years of the Turkish Grand National Assembly and the first fifteen years of the Turkish Republic. So Turkish foreign policy of this period may be named the Foreign Policy of Atatürk. The great achievement of Atatürk was his ability to organize the in-tense nationalism of the twenties so that it became productive patriotism. His luck was the misjudgment, by the Allies of him and of forces, he put into action.
