Europe, Asia for Panama Resolution

Canal ExpansionPanama, May 2 (Prensa Latina) Panamanian Vice President and Foreign Minister Samuel Lewis will tour Europe and Asia as of May 10 to foster the project of modernization of the Panama Canal Zone, official sources reported Tuesday. Lewis, accompanied by the country's Canal Zone Authority manager Alberto Aleman, traveled to Atlanta last week to analyze the issue with ex-US President James Carter. Carter signed the Torrijos-Carter Treaties in 1977 that opened the way to the return of the Canal Zone to Panama, a historic project agreed on December 31, 1999. According to the Panamanian Foreign Ministry, Lewis is readying a tour of Europe, including Austria and Germany, and Asia. The United States is another of the topics included in the Canal Zone program.
