Cambodian Leader Sings Praises of US after Letter from Trump

Cambodian Leader Sings Praises of US after Letter from Trump

Friday, 22 November 2019 06:38 AM

PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — Cambodia's Prime Minister Hun Sun has signaled he would welcome better relations with the United States after a conciliatory letter from President Donald Trump and a meeting with Washington's new envoy.

Hun Sen posted on his Facebook page a summary of the Nov. 1 letter from Trump, along with an account of how he told Ambassador Patrick Murphy of Cambodia's goodwill toward the United States.

Washington has long been critical of Hun Sen's poor record on human rights and democracy.

Trump’s letter assured Hun Sen that the United States does not seek regime change but counseled that he should “put Cambodia back on the path of democratic governance.” He suggested reevaluating decisions that could threaten Cambodia’s “long-term sovereignty, stability, and economic development.”
