Good faith is one of the general and fundamental principles of International Law which indicates the need for voice of fairness, honesty and reasonableness in international relations. This principle protects legitimate and reasonable interests and expectations of parties to international relations and is particularly raised as a requirement for the settlement of international disputes. Some of the rules of International Law, including pacta sunt servanda, estoppel, acquiescence, abuse of rights and negotiations are basically established on good faith. This article examines the relationship between good faith and the mentioned rules and ultimately argues that although good faith is not merely considered as a source of obligations, it acts as a limitation, i. e. the fulfillment of this principle by States regulates the performance of their rights and obligations in the international community.
