Local EU statement on the political situation in Ca mbodia
30 May 2016
The European Union Delegation issues the following statement in agreement with the EU Heads of Mission in Cambodia.
EU Heads of Mission in Phnom Penh deeply regret the dangerous political escalation of recent days and call for a halt to the judicial harassment of the acting leader of the opposition and representatives of civil society organisations. We urge the Cambodian authorities to resume as soon as possible a peaceful and constructive dialogue with the opposition, which we see as a prerequisite for the legitimacy of the forthcoming elections.
