Banh takes aim at sanctions

Minister of National Defence Tea Banh on Monday criticised sanctions imposed on Cambodia by “superpowers and organisations” as unjust and as a political trend against the Kingdom.

Tea Banh’s criticisms came on Monday during the closing ceremony for training on surveying for UN-peacekeeping operations to enhance topographical skills at the Council of Ministers. Japanese Ministry of Defence director-general Yasunori Nishida was in attendance.

Recently the US House approved a bill called the “HR 526 Cambodia Democracy Act”, which aims to “promote free and fair elections, political freedom and human rights in Cambodia”.
