ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the Greek foreign policy and its relations with Turkey. For many years after the tiny new Greek state came into existence in 1828 it was unable in the nature of things to pursue a policy dedicated to the maintenance of peace. Its main aim had to be to liberate from the Ottoman yoke all the many regions where the Greek element was in an overwhelming majority. At the time, the very raison d'être of its existence compelled it to become the nucleus of a national commonwealth wherein the whole Greek race could be reassembled and unified. Obviously such sweeping claims could hope to receive satisfaction only in conjunction with the outbreak of a major war, and in view of the tensions created by the continuing crisis between Egypt and Turkey this did not seem very far off.
