The author considers the activities of high-ranking statesmen from the point of view of their official powers. Since the policy carried out by a high-ranking government official responds to the State’s needs and requests, and he enjoys the immunity (comprising that from the international courts) coming from the State. Immunity imposed on the state officials of high standing has its roots in the immunity of the State. However, some actions of a high-ranking statesman can be beyond immunity.
