Independent diplomacy

See also

Independent diplomacy refers to the practice of conducting diplomatic relations and negotiations by a country or organisation without being aligned or dependent on any particular ally or group of allies.

In other words, an independent diplomatic approach involves pursuing a foreign policy that is based on a country’s own interests, values, and objectives, rather than simply following the interests and agendas of other nations or international organisations.

Independent diplomacy can involve engaging with a wide range of countries and actors, and pursuing a variety of diplomatic initiatives, such as trade negotiations, peace talks, or cultural exchanges. It can also involve taking a principled stance on key issues, such as human rights, regardless of the views of other countries or powerful international actors.

Overall, independent diplomacy allows a country to maintain its sovereignty and pursue its own interests and goals, while also engaging with other nations in a constructive and mutually beneficial way.
