The Greek foreign policy, 1936-1944

The country's international relations

During the interwar period and at least until mid-1930s, Greek foreign policy had been readjusted, transforming its requirements and practices according to the changeable facts of that period. Despite the frequent political alternations, Greece evolved with rapid rates towards domestic reconstruction and industrial development and securing its vital interests demanded the adoption of flexible as well as direct diplomatic approaches. Undoubtedly the success of such moves did not depend only on masterstrokes, but also on the country's weight and international supports on the diplomacy front.
