The mechanism of business relations between states and their representatives is based on generally accepted rules and conditions. They can be expressed by various means of communication, collectively representing an international diplomatic protocol. Its main task is to make communication comfortable and acceptable for both parties.

The concept of diplomacy

The term "diplomacy" comes from the Greek word for "diploma". At one time, the inhabitants of ancient Hellas called so double tablets with text, which were issued to ambassadors to confirm their powers.

Today, diplomacy is understood to mean the activities of heads of state, as well as bodies and persons representing it, aimed at solving foreign policy problems, ensuring the protection of the rights and interests of the country outside its borders.

In everyday life, diplomacy is perceived as the art of negotiating, using subtle techniques to reach an agreement. A polite interlocutor who behaves tactfully, is familiar with the rules of etiquette and is able to win over himself, will always find a common language with others.

In politics, the set of techniques used depending on the nature of the issues to be solved and specific situations is defined as a diplomatic protocol.

Some are inclined to equate the concepts of "diplomacy" and "foreign policy", but this is wrong if only because the armed forces can become an instrument of foreign policy. And this approach is fundamentally contrary to the goals of diplomacy.

Diplomatic Protocol Basics

The diplomatic protocol is based on the principles of "international courtesy", mutual respect, includes elements of etiquette and ceremony. In fact, it is a historically developed system of generally accepted rules, conventions and traditions that has been formed for more than one hundred years.

The diplomatic protocol in each country has its own national characteristics. Its foundation is stable and consists in showing respect to guests representing their people.

Any foreign policy actions and forms of international economic cooperation are implemented, first of all, in accordance with the norms of diplomatic protocol and etiquette. Ignoring these norms seriously damages the authority of the state. So, in history there is a case when the careless placement of diplomats at the dinner table led to an armed conflict between the two states.
