Formation and development of strategic partnership
The idea of strategic partnership among countries was initiated right in the “Cold War” time. However, it was just mentioned in studies on special cooperation among countries, not a systematic theory. Until the end of the 1980s, in a world of changes, scholars used the notion of strategic partnership more to analyze relationships among countries in the aspects of geopolitics, national interests; forms, contents, aims and consequences of those relationships. By the end of the 1990s, the notion became more popular when several countries used it as a type of “shield” to protect their national security.
Today, strategic partnership is applied quite popularly in international cooperations. It has appeared in various documents on international cooperation, studies as well as in the media. Moreover, it is used in business when companies establish a long-term cooperation to solve the most important task in their restructuring and reform in the context of globalization and international integration.
Criteria, characteristics and conditions required to establish a strategic partnership
Any countríes trying to build a strategic partnership with another country should set up criteria for this special relationship. According to experts, that relationship must satisfy the following basic criteria. First, countries trying to establish a strategic partnership share mutual and strategically important targets, or even vital interests. In this regard, there should be collaboration between parties with a long-term plan and roadmap. One of the vital targets is to maintain security, prosperity and status of each other in the international arena, of which maintaining security and prosperity of each other is the core. Second, countries should share common perceptions on targets and principles to develop strategic partnership. Third, it is necessary to set up legal foundations for shaping strategic partnership between the two countries, clarifying the contents of cooperation and legal mechanisms to implement the identified contents in strategic partnership. Fourth, it is important to attach great importance to the demand for cooperation in the fields of strategic importance on the basis of mutual interests. Fifth, one country, which has advantages in some fields, should consider the interests of the other, being ready to have concession and support its partner, even in case of no certain benefits for its own.Sixth, parties should not have discriminatory acts or issue an ultimatum towards each other. Seventh, it is necessary to proactively build mutual conceptions on values based on the political system of the partner.Eighth, the effectiveness of a strategic partnership must be supported by political elites and social community, meeting the vital demands of the people.

From the above-mentioned criteria, it is possible to identify several basic features of a strategic partnership as follows. First, a strategic partnership bears clarity, transparency, and consistency especially in defining purposes, targets, tasks and mutual benefits of countries. Second, that relationship stays durable and stable.Third, a strategic partnership is diverse; it could be applied into various fields of each country, such as economics, politics, military, culture, science - technology, and education. Fourth, motives and aims of each party in a strategic partnership are different from those in other relationships among countries. Fifth, strategic partnership exists not only in bilateral relations but also in global scope.
