Aceh -Turkey relations

The Sultan says "that in days of yore allah gave the world two most powerful rulers: the prophet Sulaiman (Solomon) and  Iskandar Zulkarnain (alexander the Great). now, by His Will, in the west we are the great king, and in the east Sri Sultan Perkasa Alam (Sultan Iskandar Muda) is the king who is great and who upholds the religion of God and his prophet" - Sultan Mehmed III of the Ottoman Empire(1595-1603)

Princes (raja-raja), viziers, and pashas of the arabs,  persians, ajams and Mughals, who are present at the Sultan’s audience, hear his words, and the name of Iskandar Muda becomes famous in the whole world. (VLADIMIR BRAGINSKY)
