Ambassadors Meet Sok An on Elections, Tribunal

In meetings with Deputy Prime Minister Sok An Thursday, the US and Canadian ambassadors discussed the Khmer Rouge Tribunal and said they were pleased with the outcomes of the April 1 commune elections.

Government spokesman Sean Visoth said Thursday both ambassadors had commended the elections, saying it went "smoothly without violence."

US Ambassador Joseph Mussomeli and Canada Ambassador Donica Pottie also discussed the Khmer Rouge tribunal, which has seen a deepening crisis in recent weeks.

Elections earlier this month were more peaceful than in elections past, but complaints of violence and intimidation have been sent to the National Election Committee for review.
