The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation called on the US Embassy in Phnom Penh on Saturday to respect the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations after it called former opposition leader Kem Sokha “an innocent man” – a move deemed to be “disrespecting Cambodia’s sovereignty”.
The ministry expressed “great surprise and concern” over the embassy’s comments on Friday that there was “No evidence. No trial. No justice” in the case of Sokha, who is currently on bail awaiting trial on a treason charge.
