Russia was very interested in the conflict between Mohammed Ali Pasha and the Ottoman State to achieve its historical hopes and ambitions to reach the warm waters across the Ottoman straits. What assists her for this the negligence of Britain and France to submit the necessary aids to Ottoman State against Mohammed Ali Pasha. That matter made the Ottoman Sultan Mahmud the second obligatory under the pressure of the victories achieved by Mohammed Ali Pasha to accept Russia’s aid which made, until that time, the major and traditional enemy of the Ottoman state. In fact Russia continued strongly to exploit the need of the sultan to protection. For the first time at the official request of the ottoman Sultan Mahmud the second, Russia landed its forces in Istanbul and moved its military ships in Ottoman Straits. It also could sign Hünkar Iskelesi Treaty on 8 July 1833 with the Ottoman state which stipulated clearly the matter of submitting the Russian aid to the Ottoman State against Mohammed Ali Pasha, and closing the Straits in the face of military ships when necessary by the Ottoman State at the request of Russia. Hence the European diplomacy and Britain in the front activated its diplomacy to resist this treaty which was considered in its outwardly as a treaty of alliance and in its reality as a protection treaty.
