For example, he notes that the United States already has a number of bilateral agreements that are not known: bilateral tax agreements. “The United States has about 60. During these negotiations, each negotiating partner reviews the previous treaty and then wishes for the best treatment of all previous treaties. That`s their demand, and if you don`t give them to them, they say, “Why don`t you love me as much as you love the previous country?” … So the idea that you can crush one partner much stronger than another – maybe, you can, but they`ll all insist on equal treatment. Navigation in the Mekong is an important theme (MRC, 2003; Osborne, 2007). There is not yet a comprehensive agreement on maritime transport, freight regulation or even a basin-wide channel marking and navigation methods system, although there has been agreement between the lower Mekong countries. While navigation was limited to small local vessels, this was not a problem, but with larger and larger ships and even proposals from Chinese officials to make the China River to the navigable sea, the lack of basin-wide navigation rules is a growing obstacle. Although there was a bilateral agreement on the transport of waterways between Cambodia and Vietnam in 1998 and an after-the-fact agreement on the transit of goods in 2000, these agreements have yet to enter into full force (MRC, 2003; Podger et al., 2004), and the river transport of the sea to Phnom Penh is therefore still inhibited. If, in a bilateral agreement, the two parties are two countries bound by an international agreement, they are generally referred to as “state parties”.  The nature of an agreement between two contracting states is governed by the provisions of the Vienna Convention on Treaty Law. An agreement between a state or organization and an international organization is governed by the rules of the Vienna Convention on the law of treaties between states and international organizations or between international organizations.
 It also seems likely that the United States will also attempt to renegotiate the U.S.-Korea Free Trade Agreement (KORUS), which came into force in 2012 through a similar process. In Seoul, Vice President Mike Pence told a group of economic leaders last week that U.S.-South Korea trade relations needed to change because U.S. companies “have too many barriers to entry, which is tipping the field against American workers,” according to the Financial Times.
