Treaty of Lausanne opened for discussion at the level of head of state in Turkey, for the first time since the day it is signed. July 15, 2016, when a coup attempt took place in Turkey, was the date that ignited the wick of this debate. The opinion as to Turkey is desired to cleaved by a network linked both domestic and abroad, reveals a New War of Independence perception. The criticisms which are made at the level of president on Lausanne could evaluate as efforts to create a ground for a powerful management system in Turkey or can be seen as a diplomatic move against foreign powers which are feeding hostility to Turkey. New diplomatic move is based on firstly the National Pact, the goal of the Turkish National Struggle which could not be fully achieved in Lausanne and secondly the New Turkey Ideal as a future perspective. There is no doubt this acceptance and course of action have not been adopted by all the parties in Turkey. Criticisms on Lausanne have received serious responses, this treaty is emphasized by the opposition politicians as the title deed of Turkey. It has been observed that these discussions have increased in a dizzying pace both in the political arena and in the media. The Lausanne discussions were reflected in international relations and recent affairs have heightened the tension in Turkish-Greek relations. It is probable that the uncertainties of some unobtrusive issues which are not solved by justice during the Lausanne negotiations might create some problems in the future. For this reason, it is inevitable that the treaty must be revised peacefully and fairly in today’s conditions.
