Competition is used in decision-making in the events of conflicts and disputes. Since competition is an important factor in decision-making, strategies that may be adopted by other countries or other allies can radically affect the outcome of such decisions. In today's world, countries can't make decisions without taking into account what other countries are doing and planning around them.

The International Regulatory System revolves around all processes that govern a network of inter-state relations. This network has contributed to the formation of interdependence and interaction between countries in the global political system, reaching the stage of interdependence. International Relations are based on solid connections and mutual interdependence between countries. Each state considers only its own strength and security because it is in a system based on self-defense. It seeks prestige among other states in the universal political regime, especially the independence of its decision, based on the compatibility of interests between countries.
