It is characterized by flexibility, confidentiality, promptness and independence.Negotiation is a mandatory method in accordance with international law, and it is of a political nature at the same time. Any party may not be able to obligate the other party but by returning to negotiations. Negotiation shall be either between two parties only, it may be multilateral, or it may be through organizations. It is not easy to define the stages of negotiation, nor does the law intervene in determining the place of negotiation or the time of its completion.The research is based on the assumption that the greater the importance of negotiations in the area of settling international disputes, the narrower the means of intervention in the internal affairs of the parties will be, as a flexible means of enhancing their independence in resolving the dispute and vice versa. In addition, the existence of such rules may organize the initiative procedures necessary for holding negotiation the holding of negotiations.While the absence of such rules may prevent holding this negotiation.
