DIPLOMACY:- KEY TO WORLD PEACE:-

By Abdulakim Etayokhai
Listen to article

DIPLOMACY IS THE ART AND PRACTICES OF CONDUCTING INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, AS IN NEGOTIATION, ALLIANCES, TREATIES, AGREEMENT AND CONVENTIONS E.T.C. IT IS ALSO A SKILL OF HANDLY AFFAIRS WITHOUT AROUSING TO HOSTILITY (TACTS).

THE UNITED NATION WAS SETUP WITH THIS OBJECTIVE IN MIND, TO PROMOTE PEACE AND TO ACT AS PLANTFORM FOR NATIONS SO THAT THEY CAN RESOLVE CONLICT USING PEACEFUL DIPLOMATIC METHOD. YET A PEACEFUL WORLD WITHOUT WARS AND CONFLICTS IS HARDLY IN SIGHT. AND THE U.N SEEMS TO BE GETTING MORE IRRELEVANT EVERYDAY.

A LOT OF FOREIGN POLICY DECISIONS ARE EXERCISED IN THE FORM OF POLITICS, THE GAIN OF EXERCISING OPTIONS, OFTEN DIBBED BY ANALYSTS AS THE GAME THEORY, DIPLOMATIC SOLUTIONS IN CASE OF CONFLICTING INTEREST WORK ONLY WHEN BOTH PARTIES ARE ON A LEVEL OF FOOTING IN EXERCISING THEIR OPTIONS.

A STRONG MILITARY ACTS AS A STRONG MOTIVATOR AGAINST A NON - DIPLOMATIC ATTACK BY EXTERNAL FORCES. IT IS NOT RIGHT TO USE A STRONG MILITARY TO CREATE WARS, TO WIN PEACE, ONE HAS TO HAVE THE CAPACITY TO WIN WARS.

THE HUMAN QUEST FOR PEACE IS AS UNENDING AS THE HUMAN DESIRE FOR WAR, EVIDENT AS BOTH DIPLOMACY AND WARFARE COEXISTED THROUGH THE AGES. IT WAS THE USE OF ATOMIC WEAPONS IN WORLD WARS, THAT HUMAN CAME TO THE REALISATION THAT WAR WILL END HUMAN KIND, UNLESS SOME MEASURE TO ENSURE PEACEFUL COEXISTED WAS FOUND. THIS RESULT TO THE SEARCH FOR WORLD GOVERNMENT, THE BIGGEST PROBLEMS TO WORLD GOVERNMENT ARE, RACE, ETHNICITY, RELIGION, NATIONS AND OTHER CULTURAL DIFFERENCES, MAKING IT WORK, HUMAN BEING ARE EQUAL.

THE CLOSEST WE HAVE TODAY IS THE UNITED NATION AND IT IS HAMPARED BY SEVERE DRAW BACK OVER THE YEARS, IT HAS TURN TO FOREIGN POLICY TOOL FOR POWERFUL NATIONS, IT EFFECTIVENESS AS WORLD ORGANISATION IS LIMITED ONLY TO A WEAK AND POWERLESS COUNTRIES.
