Cambodia denies undermining peace efforts in Myanmar, accuses Charles Santiago, Asean panel of malice

Cambodia’s Commission on Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation, Information and Media has rejected what it called “blind accusations” from the Asean Parliamentarians for Human Rights (APHR) over Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen’s visit to Myanmar on January 7.

In a statement, the commission said Hun Sen’s visit was part of his effort to end the conflict in Myanmar and “only an evil-minded person and his/her clique would under the pretext of human rights dare to turn their blind eyes” on it.

The commission also criticised Klang MP Charles Santiago, the chairman of the AHPR, and accused of being “seen to have associated himself with a handful of extremist political activists, warmonger politicians or the outlaws”.
