Also, it is a helpful instrument for fostering and enhancing diplomatic ties and for sustaining frequent communication between nations.

Overall, telephone diplomacy has grown to be a significant aspect of contemporary diplomatic practice and is frequently used in conjunction with more conventional diplomatic techniques, including official visits, summits, and discussions.
