Global Reaction
Negative Reaction:
The Treaty of Sevres has severe implications on Turkey. Turkey lost control of parts of their economy such as control over imports/exports or control over national budget as it was controlled by the Allies. She could not have economic relations with the Central Allies Germany, Austria, Hungary and Bulgaria. Nationalists led by Mustafa Kemel challenged the Treaty. Kemel said that the Turkish straits should stay Turkish and that the people should not be punished for their leader actions. They drove the Greeks out of Symra (on the Aegean Sea Coast) and rejected the treaty, which led to the Treaty of Lausanne.

United States, who did not sign the Treaty of Sevres, and wanted nothing to do with the breaking up of the Ottoman empire.

Positive Reaction:
France, Britain, and Italy were supportive of the Treaty, as it led to territorial and economic gains, while weakening historic enemies.
