Cambodia welcomes US stance of non-interference

Cambodia has welcomed new US Ambassador Patrick Murphy’s stance of not interfering in the Kingdom’s internal affairs or supporting violent regime change, said a press release from the Council of Ministers on Friday following a meeting presided over by Prime Minister Hun Sen.

The statement came two days after Murphy paid a courtesy call to Hun Sen at the Peace Palace in Phnom Penh on Wednesday, and a day after he met with Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation Prak Sokhonn.

“The Royal Government of Cambodia welcomes the claim of His Excellency Patrick Murphy, the new US ambassador to Cambodia, who expressed the US’ clear stance of not interfering in Cambodia’s internal affairs and not supporting regime change or any change of government through violent or undemocratic means,” the press release said.
