The rapid development of digital technologies and the pandemic experience at the international and national levels have made it clear that every day all key areas are undergoing digital transformation. From this perspective, the diplomatic service is no exception. Information and communication technologies have become the tools or means by which, at little or less cost and within a given time frame, a country can ensure the implementation of its foreign policy priorities. Furthermore, the possibilities of the digital world are not limited by borders. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to explore the legal aspects of digital diplomacy, especially in the context of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations of 1961. The authors of the Convention could not foresee that digital platforms could be created and foreign policy goals could be implemented remotely between representatives of states by using information and communication technologies.
