When a suppressed nation decides to take up action in order to achieve its freedom many issues are raised for such actions do not affect only the conquered and the conquerors but they have an enormous impact on all neighbor nations Therefore the Greek war of independence is a multidimensional event which did not have to do only with the two peoples directly involved Turkish and Greek but with the rest of the European countries as well For this reason the Greek war of Independence has to be examined within the broader context of the relations of the European states their economic and imperialistic interests and plans their recent experience of wars and how all these factors are interwoven After the defeat of Napoleon European states decided that they had somehow to preserve a balance in Europe so as to avoid any future offensive advances of any country For this reason the most powerful countries of Europe Great Britain Austria Russia France and Prussia gathered in Paris in 1815 in an effort to secure a lasting peace in the Continent Actually their main purpose was to contain the so far offensive policy of France As a matter of fact we can verify this from a state speech that Lord Castlereagh the British Minister of Foreign Affairs gave at the Cabinet in 1820 It was a union for the Reconquest and liberation of great proportion of the Continent of Europe from the Military Dminion of France It was never intended as a union for the Government of the World or for the Superintendence of the Internal Affairs of other States quoted in J Joll 71 However at the back-stages of all these official conferences many secret agreements were being concluded among the allies the one trying to steal away power from the other That is how the European picture more or less looked like when the Greek struggle for independence broke out
