The peaceful application by a country of resources from across the spectrum of defence, for the purpose of developing advantageous bilateral and multilateral relationships. "Military diplomacy" is a subset of this, tending to refer mainly to the role of military attachés and their associated activity. Defence diplomacy does not include combat or counter-insurgency operations, but subsumes such other defence activity as international personnel exchanges, ship and aircraft visits, high level engagement (e.g. Ministers and senior defence personnel), training and exercises, security system reform, regional defence and security forums (e.g. Halifax Forum, Munich Conference, Shangri-la Dialogue, ), or bilateral military staff talks.
Usage: The Brazilian Government is employing defence diplomacy to advance its regional security objectives in Latin America and the Caribbean.
