The Right to Intervene

November 1977
National Review;11/25/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 46, p1347
The article focuses on international agreements between Panama and the United States regarding the protection of the Panama Canal's integrity. According to a joint statement issued by the governments of Panama and the U.S., none of the provisions of the Panama Canal treaties should be interpreted as a right of intervention of the U.S. in the internal affairs of Panama. The U.S. and Panama will defend the Canal against any threat to its neutrality or to the peaceful passage of vessels through the Canal. Opponents of the agreements are highlighting the absence of a right of intervention.
