Foreign Policy

• A country’s relation with other countries of the world is known


as their external relations. The external relation of a country
is based on certain principls and policies. They are collectively
called as foreign policy.
• Thus foreign policy is the totality of actions of a state in
dealing with external environment consisting of national (e.g.
USA, Japan, India), international (e.g. UN, WTO) and regional
(e.g. SAARC, EU) actors.
• In other words foreign policy is the sum total of a country’s
relationship with these actors while pursuing its perceived
goals and objectives. Through the process of foreign policy a
state translates its goals and interests into specific course of
action.
