rapprochement - settlement
The formal word ‘rapprochement’ is used to express the building of cordial relations between two or more countries, people, or groups, especially after a period of conflict or mutual suspicion. This term is most commonly used in written English, particularly in relation to media reports involving international politics.
I would prefer to seek a rapprochement rather than continue this petty feud with my co-worker any longer. That’s why I’m planning to meet her in person and apologize.
Talks are likely to continue into next week, but hopes of a rapprochement between the two countries are fading.
Now that tensions have thawed between our two organizations, I feel like we might be able to enter into a period of rapprochement.
