That is the case of Brazil because of its agriculture, energy and mineral resources which has entered the G-20 and is an active member of the BRICS. Brazil aspires for a more influential global position.

The most important conflicts in Latin America are:

  • Colombia with Ecuador and Venezuela for financing the FARC, a Marxist guerrilla responsible of drug traffic and kidnapping civilians.  A disarming agreement has been signed to finish with the conflict.
