He withdrew once more, scouring the Hungarian plain as he headed back to his capital, satisfied that the Habsburgs had been sufficiently warned not to disturb the delicate balance of power in the northern Balkans. He left a Turkish garrison in Buda to support Zapolya. Meanwhile, in the west, a truce had been agreed upon at Cambrai in August 1529 between Francis I and Charles V.

He dictated a letter which marks the beginning of French-Ottoman diplomatic affairs. I, who am the Sultan of Sultans, the King of Kings, the Distributor of crowns to the princes of this world, the Shadow of God upon earth, the Supreme Sovereign of the White Sea and Black Sea, of Roumelia, Anatolia and of the countries which my glorious ancestors have conquered, as well as the numerous countries subjugated by my own triumphant sword, to Francis, who is prince of the country of France . . The French envoy made his presentation and the sultan had been pleased with the message from Francis: All that he [the envoy] has spoken at the foot of my throne, the refuge of the world, has made me perfectly understand your situation.

He quickly made contact with Siileyman, promising loyalty in return for recognition of his title.
