Furious response as US blacklists Chinese developer over Cambodian ‘human rights violation’

Today, the Chinese embassy in Cambodia called the decision “a blatant hegemonic act” and demanded that the US “correct its wrongdoing and withdraw the so-called sanction”.

The company in question is the Union Development Group, which is building the $3.8bn Dara Sakor complex on 36,000ha of land leased for 99 years in the Botum Sakor national park.

Altogether, the concession covers a fifth of Cambodia’s coastline.
