By that time, however, the United States had already revived its old project of annexing the region.
From Mexico's point of view, the annexation of Texas to the United States was inadmissible for both legal and security reasons.
The impossibility of reincorporating Texas through military submission of the rebels was already clear in 1843 when the Santa Anna government agreed to sign an armistice.
In that year, the option of negotiations leaning toward recognition of Texan independence began to take shape.
