Treaty
A TREATY is an agreement under international law entered into by actors in international law, namely sovereign states and international organizations . A treaty may also be known as an (INTERNATIONAL) AGREEMENT, PROTOCOL, COVENANT, CONVENTION, PACT, or EXCHANGE OF LETTERS, among other terms.

Treaties can be loosely compared to contracts : both are means of willing parties assuming obligations among themselves, and a party to either that fails to live up to their obligations can be held liable under international law
