These include minor territorial adjustments, border adjustments, border surveillance, regulation of fishing rights, private monetary claims against another government or its nationals, in the words of Stories, the “mere rights deprived of sovereignty”. 467 Crandall lists many such agreements with other governments with the permission of the President.468 Such agreements generally covered certain relatively insignificant disputes, and the settlement they entail ipso facto renders them inoperative. There are also secular diplomatic means such as the “protocol”, which marks a phase in the negotiation of a treaty, and the modus vivendi, which is supposed to serve as a temporary replacement for a treaty. Executive agreements become of constitutional importance if they represent a determining factor for future foreign policy and therefore for the fate of the country. In particular, because of our participation in The Second World War and our immersion in the conditions of international tensions that prevailed before and after the war, presidents made agreements with other governments, some of which converged temporary alliances. However, it cannot rightly be said that they acted without the significant support of precedents. If a contract does not contain any provisions for other agreements or actions, only the text of the contract is legally binding. In general, an amendment to the treaty is binding only on States that have ratified it, and agreements reached at review conferences, summits or meetings of States parties are politically binding, but not legally binding. An example of a treaty that contains provisions for other binding agreements is the Charter of the United Nations. By signing and ratifying the Charter, countries have agreed to be legally bound by resolutions adopted by United Nations bodies such as the General Assembly and the Security Council.
Therefore, UN resolutions are legally binding on UN member states and no signature or ratification is required. From the spring and autumn periods of the eighth century BC. China has been divided into many Han ethnic states, often at war with one another. As a result, rules for diplomacy and treaty-making have emerged, including notions of the just motives of war, the rights of neutral parties, and the consolidation and division of States; These concepts have sometimes been applied to relations with non-Han “barbarians” along China`s western periphery.  In the post-Warring States period, two great schools of thought developed, Confucianism and legalism, both of which believed that the national and international legal spheres were closely interconnected and sought to establish competing normative principles to guide foreign relations. Similarly, the Indian subcontinent was characterized by an ever-changing group of states that, over time, developed rules of neutrality, contract law and international behavior. .
