Brazilian President Dilma Rousseff arrives in Washington on Monday. Her meeting with President Obama is a reminder of how much international relations have changed during the last decade. The United States must increasingly rely on rising powers such as Brazil to manage an ever more-complex world.
On the other side of the Atlantic is another rising power, Turkey, which has become a pivotal power in the wake of the Arab Spring. Brazil is the uncontested leader in South America, and Turkey is a NATO member central to managing the Syrian quagmire. Though the United States may not be on the same wavelength as either of these new powers, Washington increasingly realizes that it does not have all the answers or all the resources at its disposal.
