Cambodia slams U.S. embassy for misleading statement over detention of former opposition leader

Phnom Penh – Cambodia on Saturday slammed the Embassy of the United States to Cambodia for a misleading comment concerning the legal case of former Cambodian opposition leader Kem Sokha.

“The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation expresses grave concern over such a conduct and categorizes the move as undiplomatic and disrespectful for the sovereignty of Cambodia,” said a statement from the ministry.

“The Kingdom of Cambodia always respects the sovereignty of other nations and has not commented on any disgraceful scandal of any senior officials and politicians of any country,” it said.
