The ministry for foreignaffairs is often regarded as the most senior ministerial position below that of the head of government (prime minister or president); it is often granted to the deputy prime minister in coalition governments.
In a classic parliamentary system, a foreignminister can potentially exert significant influence in forming foreign policy but when the government is dominated by a strong prime minister the foreignminister may be limited to playing a more marginal or subsidiary role in determining policy.
In the United Kingdom, the foreignminister is called the 'Foreign Secretary'; after the merger of the previously separate Foreign Office and Commonwealth Office in 1968, the foreignminister is officially referred to as the 'Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs'.
