How Cambodia can help the USA

Phnom Penh, 26 June 2015

Congratulations on your nomination to be the new US ambassador to Cambodia.

I was interested to read in press accounts of your interview by the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that you said your “priority” as ambassador would be to “strengthen Cambodia’s democratic institutions” and specifically to push for “free and fair” elections for commune councils in 2017 and the National Assembly in 2018. 1,154 more words

Culture of Dialogue

The Prime Minister and his opposition counterpart, Sam Rainsy, are touting a new era of competition without rancor or inflammatory speech, a Culture of Dialogue. This all seems to have come out of last year’s accord which ended the opposition’s boycott of parliament and near daily demonstrations and the disruptions and conflict they caused. 2,475 more words
