From the Paper:

"With the dawn of the 20th century, the world has gradually become conscious of the fact that countries of the world largely depend on each other for operations as well as resources. For this reason foreign relations have been formulated, ties formed with the aim to identify with nations that would provide services or trade. Most of the transactions carried out were with "friendly" nations while those that compete directly or indirectly are considered to be "enemies". With WWI and WWII many nations and state have come to the realization that countries cannot rely on individual bilateral relations alone. Bilateral relations no longer serve the purpose of multitude of trade transactions as each country has different policies for trade as well as politics."
