    PANAMA IS TO HAVE A SHARE IN THE ADMINISTRATION AND OPERATION OF THE PANAMA CANAL UNDER A NEW TREATY WITH THE UNITED STATES. NEGOTIATIONS ON THE NEW TREATY HAVE BEEN GOING ON FOR THE PAST EIGHTEEN MONTHS.

    PRESIDENT JOHNSON YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) SAID UNDER THE NEW TREATY PANAMA'S SOVEREIGNTY OVER THE CANAL ZONE -- A STRIP AROUND THE CANAL CONTROLLED BY THE UNITED STATES -- WOULD BE RECOGNISED. THE QUESTION OF PANAMANIAN SOVEREIGNTY OVER THE ZONE LED TO LAST YEAR;S RIOTS IN WHICH 23 DEMONSTRATORS AND FOUR SOLDIERS DIED.

    THE NEW AGREEMENT WILL ABROGATE THE 1903 TREATY WHICH GAVE THE UNITED STATES PERPETUAL SOVEREIGNTY OVER THE CANAL.

    PRESIDENT JOHNSON SAID THE UNITED STATES WAS STUDYING ROUTES THROUGH PANAMA FOR A NEW SEA-LEVEL CANAL TO REPLACE THE LOCK SYSTEM IN THE EXISTING CHANNEL. NEGOTIATIONS ON THE FINANCING, CONSTRUCTION AND OPERATION OF THE NEW CANAL WERE CONTINUING.

    THE NEW TREATY IS TO REMAIN IN EFFECT FOR A SPECIFIED NUMBER OF YEARS OR UNTIL THE NEW SEA LEVEL CANAL IS OPENED WHICHEVER OCCURS FIRST.
