Historically, relations between Brazil and Mexico have not been particularly close. One of the consequences of Brazil's rise was to draw the two countries together, although not necessarily in a harmonious way. The article argues that Mexican governments resented Brazil's attempts at becoming a global player at a time when they pursued the same goal. Mexico's response to Brazil's international projection was to approach it, trying to contain it, and to avoid exclusion from regional initiatives.
