Foreign Affairs Power


Under INTERNATIONAL LAW a state has the right to enter into relations with other states. This power to conduct foreign affairs is one of the rights a state gains by attaining independence. The division of authority within a government to exercise its foreign affairs power varies from state to state. In the United States that power is vested primarily in the president, although the Congress retains important express and implied powers over international affairs.
