A state's foreign policy is its objectives and activities in relation to its interactions with other states, whether bilaterally or through multilateral platforms.[2] The Encyclopedia Britannica notes that a country's foreign policy may be influenced by "domestic considerations, the policies or behaviour of other states, or plans to advance specific geopolitical designs."[2]
