Parties often develop agreements with a language that blurs the lines between a treaty and an agreement. The question is whether the parties intend to be legally bound by the terms of the agreement. While what the parties call the written document may prove their intent, it does not determine the nature of the agreement the parties have entered into.

This must be explicitly stated, as the agreement must be supported by a counterparty and it must mention the exchange of dollars/rupees or reciprocal goods or promises.
