U.S. Lawmakers Say Cambodian Government Violating Paris Peace Agreement, Call For Action

The United States has taken no public steps so far to review Cambodia’s GSP access but the House of Representatives has passed the Cambodia Democracy Act 2019.

U.S. lawmakers on Monday called for the United States to take concrete action against the Cambodian administration for violating the Paris Peace Agreement, even as Congress considers legislation to impose further sanctions.

The comments were made at an event marking the October 23, 1991, signing of the historic peace agreement that saw Cambodia come under the United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia to transition the country into a democracy and an end to civil strife involving four factions.

U.S lawmakers, Cambodian diaspora groups and opposition members attended the event, where Congressman Alan Lowenthal (D-CA) said economic benefits given to Cambodia were incumbent on preservation and respect for democratic values.
