This article focuses on the unstable foreign policy during the administration of U.S. President Ronald Reagan. International relations during the tenure of office of Reagan's administration was badly affected by the conflict existing between Secretary of State Alexander Haig and Secretary of Defense Caspar Weinberger. At that time, American foreign policy had seemed, often, to be divided into two because of the bickering in his cabinet. These did not only implied uncertainty on the country's policy but also to the whole Reagan's administration.
