    Bi lateral involves the participation of 2 parties which can either be sovereign states or non state actors in diplomacy such as Multi National Corporations, international NGOs. etc. When the Head of State holds discussions with a UN agency like WTO, we refer to such duscussions as Multi lateral which connotes the involvement of more than one participant
