The term “diplomacy” comes from the Greeks, and it means the practice of dealing with other nations to foster better relations and negotiate social, cultural, environmental, and economic issues such as peace, trade, pollution, and human rights.
Diplomatic missions are offices that represent a country’s government in the territory of another nation. They are either embassies or consulates, with the former established at the capital city of the target country and the latter set up in any of the other nation’s major cities. There are both resident and non-resident embassies, which means a permanent office may exist in one nation, but several, non-permanent offices can be opened in other countries.

A good diplomat will exhibit extreme tact and sensitivity, especially in delicate matters that could lead to the losing of ties between two countries or even war. A diplomatic mission is of course not just about the consul general; it is composed of a group of individuals from one country and can also be an intergovernmental alliance or organization. For example, the United Nations is the biggest diplomatic mission in the world.
The rights and so-called diplomatic immunity of people in a diplomatic mission are protected by the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations. Diplomats and their staff can both choose to reside within the embassy or consulate’s compound or choose highly secure private residences that are equally protected by established rights and immunity.
