The border statement is available at obamawhitehouse.archives.gov/the-press-office/2011/02/04/declaration-president-obama-and-prime-minister-harper-canada-beyond-bord. The Ogdensburg Agreement was an agreement between Canadian Prime Minister William Lyon Mackenzie King and U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt on August 17, 1940 in Heuvelton, near Ogdensburg, New York. [1] He outlined a permanent plan for mutual foreign defence between the United States and Canada and created the Permanent Defence Council. A long-running dispute between Canada and the United States concerns the issue of Canadian sovereignty over the Northwest Passage (Arctic sea crossings). Canada`s assertion that the Northwest Passage represents inland (territorial) waters has been challenged by other countries, including the United States, which claim that these waters constitute an international strait (international waters). Canadians were alerted when the Americans crossed the Northwest Passage in 1969, and in 1985 the icebreaker followed Polar Sea, leading to a small diplomatic incident. In 1970, the Canadian Parliament passed the Arctic Waters Pollution Prevention Act, which upholds Canadian pollution regulations within a 100-mile zone.

In response, the United States said in 1970, „We cannot accept Canada`s assertion that Arctic waters are inland waters of Canada. … Such acceptance would jeopardize freedom of navigation, which is essential for the united States` global naval activities. A compromise of this kind was reached in 1988 through an agreement on „Arctic cooperation“ that promised that U.S. icebreaker travel would be made „with the agreement of the Canadian government.“ However, the agreement did not change the fundamental legal situation of the two countries. Paul Cellucci, the U.S. Ambassador to Canada, proposed in 2005 to Washington to recognize the strait as owned by Canada. His advice was rejected and Harper took opposing positions. The United States rejects Mr. Harper`s plan to deploy military icebreakers in the Arctic to track down intruders and assert Canadian sovereignty over these waters. [187] [188] On December 7, 2011, Harper flew to Washington, met with Obama and signed an agreement to implement joint action plans drawn up since the first meeting in February. The plans called on both countries to spend more on border infrastructure, exchange more information on people crossing the border and recognize more security controls from the other country in transport from third countries.

An editorial in The Globe and Mail praised the agreement to allow Canada to track whether refugees failed to leave Canada via the United States and to eliminate „double baggage checks on connecting flights.“ [125] The agreement is not a legally binding treaty and is based on the political will and ability of the leaders of both governments to implement the terms of the agreement. This kind of executive agreement is routine on both sides of the Canada-U.S. border. Investments. The Trump administration would support the removal of the controversial Investor-State Dispute Settlement Mechanism (ISDR) in the investment chapter of the agreement. NAFTA was the first U.S. free trade agreement to consolidate an investment chapter, modelled on U.S. BILATERAL INVESTMENT agreements. ISDS is a form of binding conciliation that allows private investors to assert rights against sovereign nations for alleged violations of investment rules in trade agreements. The United States has reportedly proposed to make ISDS an opt-in-opt-out system, with each party deciding whether the cases are accepted by the other.

The United States has also proposed limiting eligibility to applications for direct expropriation.
