At the time of his accession the Empire was at a critical stage with ongoing battles on all the borders and he tried to create alliances with major powers in the United Kingdom and France who had fought alongside the Ottoman Empire in the Crimean War against Russia and following the Congress of Paris on 30 March 1856, the Ottoman Empire was officially included as one of the European family of nations.
