Abstract:

There are strong administrative, political, economic and socio-cultural ties between the Ottoman State and Romania. Romania, which remained under the Ottoman administration for several centuries, gained its independence at the end of the Ottoman-Russian War of 1877-1878. Even though gaining Romania’s independence did not cause misunderstandings between the two states, during the First World War, as a result of Romania's membership in the Allied Powers bloc, relations between the Ottoman State and Romania were suspended. Relations between the two states, which were frozen on August 20, 1916, could not be restored until June 20, 1922. This study is based on Ottoman Archives of the Prime Minister’s Office (Başbakanlık Osmanlı Arşivi), as well as on literature in domain published by Turkish and Romanian researchers and deals with commercial and diplomatic relations between Romania and the Ottoman State after Romania’s independence within the framework of the historical commitment between the two states, between 1901-1906, covering the period when Alexandru Em. Lahovary was named as Romanian’s ambassador in Constantinopole. For a better understanding of the Ottoman-Romanian relations in the post-Ottoman Romania, it is necessary to look at great achievements, as commercial agreements between the two states between 1901-1906, which included some critical years. This study highlights one of the first commercial agreements between Romania and the Ottoman State, thus proving the importance given by the Ottomans to the newly created Romania. This study is useful for researchers in the field of economic history, history but also for master and doctoral students in the field of international relations. Last but not least, this study can be useful for the general public interested in history.
