Keywords: Latin America | United States | China | international order | cooperation | security

The author begins by defining concepts such as unipolarity, unilateralism and primacy, before going on to describe the current context of the international sphere, which he defines as a hybrid order with clear elements of a unipolar pattern and a number of phenomena that suggest an inter-state multipolarity. The writer then focuses on relations in the Latin America-China-United States triangle, a situation that he views as being a potentially useful opportunity for all three parties in both political and diplomatic terms, as well as for the purposes of cooperation and security. Increasing the positive links in this triangle is very beneficial for a peripheral region such as Latin America, which can thus increase andaccumulate more power and autonomy in the current international hybrid order.
