Phillip Darkwah-Ms Wylie's Global History Class
The Truman Doctrine was an international relations policy set forth by the U.S. President Harry Truman in a speech March 12, 1947 which stated that the U.S. would support Greece And Turkey with economic and military aid to prevent them from falling into the Soviet sphere. Historians often consider it as the start of the Cold War, and the start of the containment policy to stop the spread of communism.
