Abstract : The issues reflected in this paper deal primarily with the controversy in U.S.-Panamanian relations during the past decade, negotiations to resolve the situations, value of the canal to the United States, and the role of the military during this period and in the future. After the incidents of 1964, the United States sought to revise its canal policy and remold its relationship with Panama along lines geared towards present day international politics. It seems negotiations are now going ahead in earnest, and within a short period of time a satisfactory conclusion should result, thereby bringing a mutually-agreeable resolution to an issue which has remained a source of contention and a major obstruction to amicable relations between two nations.
