FUNCINPEC and the Sam Rainsy Party Sign Power-Sharing Agreement Tuesday - 2004-03-17

The leaders of Cambodia's two main opposition parties sign a power-sharing agreement that will give them both positions in a future coalition government. The deal is a new sign that Cambodia's lengthy political deadlock is nearing its end.

Prince Norodom Ranariddh and Sam Rainsy signed the agreement late Tuesday that they would push for the future government to share power between the Funcinpec Party and Sam Rainsy Party (SRP).

The document faxed to news agencies adds that all important government decisions and tasks will have to be approved by both parties.
