Document: President Carter's Letter Regarding the Panama Canal Treaty

April 1978

To Senator

As President, I want to express my admiration for your support of the Panama Canal treaties. Rarely is a national leader called upon to act on such an important issue frought with so much potential political sacrifice.

On behalf of the people of the United States, I thank you for your personal demonstration of statesmanship and political courage.


Jimmy Carter [signature]
