Brazil and Mexico are not giving each other the cold shoulder, though given the slowdown and uncertainty of the international economic scenario, their relationship is moving forward in too cautious a manner. At the end of Dilma Rousseff’s first year as president, it has been demonstrated that it is possible to get over the mistrust that still exists between the two governments. Brazil and Mexico have different projects for their international placement, but they are compatible. If greater consistency is not achieved between these two countries, there is a real danger of a division between the Latin America of the Atlantic, led by Brazil, and the Latin America of the Pacific, led by Mexico.
