Armenians and Kurds who had a lot of interest from the great powers such as Russia, England and Germany were living in the Caucasus, Iran and the Ottoman Empire. These elements who had different religions and cultures also differed in daily life style. Armenians and the Kurds did not show any integrity amongst themselves. The most important thing that divided these nations was the fact that they had no common sect. Kurds were Muslims, but they were part of both Sunni and Shia sects; so they were divided. Armenians; however, were the people who were affected the most by the missionaries; so they accepted their religious views and even their policies. There were also policy clashes between the Armenians themselves. This fact made the guidance of these two nations by the great powers much easier.
