Let $(A, B)$ be a nonempty bounded closed convex proximal parallel pair in a nearly uniformly convex Banach space and $T: A\cup B \rightarrow A\cup B$ be a continuous and asymptotically relatively nonexpansive map. We prove that there exists $x \in A\cup B$ such that $\|x - Tx\| = \emph{dist}(A, B)$ whenever $T(A) \subseteq B$, $T(B) \subseteq A$. Also, we establish that if $T(A) \subseteq A$ and $T(B) \subseteq B$, then there exist $x \in A$ and $y\in B$ such that $Tx = x$, $Ty = y$ and $\|x - y\| = \emph{dist}(A, B)$. We prove the aforesaid results when the pair $(A, B)$ has the rectangle property and property $UC$. In case of $A = B$, we obtain, as a particular case of our results, the basic fixed point theorem for asymptotically nonexpansive maps by Goebel and Kirk.
