ABSTRACT
The article discusses Panamanian negotiator Carlos Lopez Guevara's statement that the Panama Canal treaties did not give the U.S. unlimited rights to intervene in the Canal's defense after 1999. Lopez is not the only having this kind of sentiments. Panama's chief negotiator, Rómulo Escobar Bethancourt, had expressed similar views before the National Assembly in August 1977. The U.S. Embassy reacted harshly after listening to Lopez's statement. U.S. Senators turned furious on Lopex for his remarks.
