We live in an interdependent world where yesterday’s neat distinctions between national and international affairs, and what constitutes domestic and foreign policy, no longer apply. Events in one country frequently have profound effects on other States and on international relations generally, which, in turn, help shape the domestic agenda in countries all over the world in a never-ending circle.

(This comes from Policy paper presented by Mr. Geert Versnick, MP (Belgium), member of the Advisory Group of the IPU Committee on United Nations Affairs.)

Does the blue part refer to "and yesterday’s neat distinctions between what constitutes domestic and foreign policy no longer apply"?

Thanks in advance!
