Government.—Panama, formerly a department of the Republic of Colombia, asserted its independence on 3 Nov., 1903, and the de facto Government was on 13 Nov. recognized by the Government of the United States, and soon afterwards by the other Powers. In 1914, Colombia agreed to recognize the independence of Panama. This treaty was ratified by the United States and Colombia in 1921, and on 8 May, 1924, diplomatic relations between Colombia and Panama were established.
