The US Must Help Bring Democracy Back to Cambodia

During his visit to Phnom Penh this week, U.S. President Joe Biden must hold Prime Minister Hun Sen accountable for the country’s steep democratic decline.

President Biden will visit Cambodia in the coming days, to attend this year’s summit for the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN).

As a proud Cambodian and someone actively involved in the process of signing the 1991 Paris Peace Agreement, a former finance minister, and leader of the main opposition as part of the country’s first independent movement of workers in 1995, I hope President Biden enjoys his visit to my country.

Whilst there, he must take concrete measures to hold Prime Minister Hun Sen accountable for his theft of democracy, and help bring a return of freedom, equality, and human rights to the country.
