Chapter 5 continues challenging commonly accepted interpretations of Turkish politics in Western literature by questioning the rules of new diplomacy and war in the East between Ankara and Moscow. Based on evidence from historical documents and memoirs of key decision-makers, the findings of this chapter draw attention to a widely neglected aspect of Turkish nation-building: the conditions of a ‘tacit agreement’ between the new regimes in Ankara and Moscow against the West at the expense of small states in the East. It explains how Turkish nationalists skilfully engaged with war against Armenia and played the rules of diplomacy in Eastern affairs.
