 Arman J. Kirakossian, British Diplomacy and the Armenian Question, from the 1830s to 1914
From the 1830s until the years before the First World War, the British priorities were consistent and predictable: asserting Britain’s economic and political influence over Turkey while protecting its territorial integrity from encroachment by other powers, most notably Russia.
While Russia asserted, with equal consistency, its right to protect the Christian subjects of the Ottoman Empire, British policy was to press for internal reforms in Turkey that could strengthen it economically and militarily, achieve equality between, and prosperity for, the Christian and Muslim communities, and suppress the national yearnings of non-Turkish peoples.
Twenty years later, the successors to Abdulhamid, the Young Turks, organized and implemented a policy of genocide that in the process of expelling the native people from its ancestral land exterminated one and a half million Armenians.
