Difference between controls

I do not understand is the difference between controls to be assigned based on risk assessment (and risk treatment) and controls to be implemented based on Information security policy.

Please note that ISO 27001 requirements for the Information Security Policy (clause 5.2) do not prescribe that controls need to be implemented based on the Information Security Policy. The purpose of the Information Security Policy is to set the organization’s high-level expectations for information security (e.g., information security objectives, fulfillment of legal requirements, commitment, etc.).

The definition of controls to be implemented is prescribed by clause 6.1.3 “b” (information security risk treatment).
