Designation applied to a loose entente among Argentina, Brazil, and Chile in the early 20th century. It grew out of bilateral arbitration and other agreements negotiated among the three states between 1899 and 1905. Later diplomatic discussion strengthened the entente, and in 1915 several arbitration and peace treaties were negotiated by the three countries. The high point of collaborative effort came in 1914, when President Woodrow Wilson requested the three governments to mediate U.S.-Mexican differences.
