story of

In modern politics and paperwork communique realize a documented list of agreements / requirements and basic provisions.Stable expression is also a "joint communique", as is often the communique is the result of politicians and diplomats of several countries at international conferences.

very first prototypes of the communique dated 6 thousand years BCand are the fruit of the efforts of Egyptian diplomats - scribes.They constitute, in the presence of the kings of different parts of Egypt and were "the agreement of the gods" (the Pharaoh in Egypt was considered the son of the sun god Ra).

media and communiqués

One of the samples can be considered a communiqué drawn up by representatives of the English nobility and King John Landless "Magna Carta."The "Charter" spells out the basic agreement between the feudal lords and the English monarchy;in particular, the prescribed cancel any taxes and duties, in addition to the legally prescribed.

Many people mistakenly believe this document is the Constitution, but more accurately be considered "Carta" the communique, which led to its creation."Charter" is not a law, but the impact on the creation of the British constitution.The document was drawn up on the "dead language theologians" - Latin.We can say that the "Charter" is not an official agreement has become such because of the lack of other documents at this level.This trend is common in diplomacy so far - the communiqué are not international agreements, may become so because of special circumstances.
