According to Dehio, the Ottoman Empire became a counterweight to the unifying tendency represented by Charles V. The introduction or intervention of the Empire into the European balance-of-power system and European diplomacy played a most significant part in preserving the freedom of the system of states. 51 In 1532, Francis I admitted to the Venetian Ambassador that he saw in the Ottoman Empire the only force guaranteeing the continued existence of the states of Europe against Charles V. Indeed, in 1535/36 we see that this guarantee was in some sense given with the bid for a Franco-Turkish Treaty, which is said to have provided the Europeans with a model in their relations with the Asian empires later in terms of unequal treaties.
