ABSTRACT
This article comments on the implications of foreign policy in France. Socialist countries follow an ascending line and gradually solve the problems presented by the building of a society where there is no exploitation and where unprecedented circumstances are created for an individual to flourish. Therefore, Soviet society constitutes the best framework for the harmonious development of individual liberties. It is suggested that a great foreign policy cannot be constructed without the help of a conceptual key that permits one to trace the nuances and the refinements of international realities.
