Nowadays (since 80’s years) Brazil and Argentina are best friends although big rivalry in sports specially in soccer.
That began somewhere around 2006 under the Bush Administration. Before that, we could travel to Canada and Mexico without a passport.

That's because I said that Argentina is not our friend, but our brother.
Brazil and Argentina have a tradition of bullying each other. But no other country is more partner of Argentina than Brazil and no country is more partner of Brazil than Argentina. The foreign tourists which most visit Brazil are argentinians and the foreign tourists which most visit Argentina are brazilians. At the same time, Argentina and Brazil are the main rivals and the main allies of each other. A war with Brazil and Argentina each one in the opposite side is something that I cannot imagine.

I'm sorry for the "one China" policy. But there is not much we can do.

But hey, Helsinki and Taipei are sister... I mean Mutual Cooperation cities. And this doesn't include diplomatic relations or anything of the sort. *shh!* For more info visit Aleksanterinkatu 17 in Helsinki. There's the embas... I mean some obscure office.

For the US I would say Canada as well as the other English speaking nations such as the UK and Australia. And For Russia I would say Serbia.

You can go to Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean with a passport card (as opposed to a book), which I suppose would be considered our national id card.

There seems to be a pattern-BFF countries tend to have fairly similar cultures.

Is that right?
https://travel.state.gov/content/pas...-and-Card.html

No. This is only another kind of passport in my opinion, to smooth the life of people who live close borders and travel a lot within these countries filling their passport book quickly. The National ID card or drive license card we use for enter in neighbor countries is the same that every citizen has since was born for use inside the country for legal identification. May be used in travels by air too.

I'm confused. I thought you wanted answers to "I'm not asking about your countries friends or aquaintances, but if you have a special and sometimes unconditional relation to another country"

All the answers don't seem to be personal but political.
