Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, whose government is accused of suppressing human rights, says foreigners risk returning his country to war through what he called stirring up turmoil and seeking regime change.
Hun Sen, who has led Cambodia since 1985, told the UN Human Rights Council that many decades of war, including the “Killing fields” of the 1970s, had taught Cambodia that it had to maintain social stability at any cost.
Democracy without the rule of law would lead to anarchy, he said.
