The formal agreement of a country or organization took place in the First World War after small but very important changes were made to European alliances. One example is a clause introduced in the Duale Alliance in 1910, which said that if Austria-Hungary was attacked by Russia, Germany would intervene directly. These changes were an indication of what was going to happen. Some historians believe that the effects that alliances had as the cause of the First World War are often overrated. They claim that the alliances were liberated or gave rise to automatic declarations of war and that the authority to declare war was exercised only by national leaders. Neither the nations nor their leaders were ready to fight with all their hearts for peace, as historian Hew Strachan put it. A bilateral agreement or bilateral activity is an agreement or bilateral activity involving two groups or two countries, whether national governments play a greater role in international relations than permanent organizations such as public services, unless a treaty contains provisions for other agreements or measures, only the text of the treaty being legally binding. In general, an amendment to the Treaty only commits the States that have ratified it and the agreements reached at review conferences, summits or meetings of the States Parties are not legally binding. The Charter of the United Nations is an example of a treaty that contains provisions for other binding agreements. By signing and ratifying the Charter, countries have agreed to be legally bound by resolutions adopted by UN bodies such as the General Assembly and the Security Council.
Therefore, UN resolutions are legally binding on UN member states and no signature or ratification is required. The peace treaty was chosen in two versions, one in Egyptian hieroglyphics and the other in Akkadian with cuneiform writing; Both versions survive. Such bilingual registration is common to many subsequent contracts. However, the treaty is different from the others because the two language versions are written differently. Although most of the text is identical, the hittitic version claims that the Egyptians were prosecuted for peace, and the Egyptian version claims otherwise. The contract was given to the Egyptians in the form of a silver plate, and the «pocket book» version was brought back to Egypt and carved in the Temple of Karnak.
