Cambodia rejects call by UN for open invite

Cambodia has rejected a UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) recommendation submitted by five countries at the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) calling on the Kingdom to issue a standing invitation to UN special procedures to visit at any time.

The rejection was part of the 25 recommendations Cambodia noted.

Cambodia officially accepted 173 out of 198 recommendations and noted 25 last week during the 41st session of the UNHRC held in Geneva, Switzerland.
