WASHINGTON DC - US President Barack Obama says he wants to continue to strengthen ties with Cambodia over his next four years in office, as the president prepares to be sworn in Jan. 20 for a second term in office.

“I look forward to continuing and strengthening the relationship between our two countries over the next four years,” Obama said in a courtesy letter to Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Obama was responding to the Cambodian premier’s own letter congratulating the US leader on his election victory.

“Working together, I am confident we will be able to successfully confront the many challenges we are facing around the world,” Obama wrote in his letter.

Under the Obama administration, Cambodia has received increased diplomatic attention. The US administration is making a concerted effort to focus on all of Asia, including Southeast Asia and Cambodia, where China’s influence has grown in recent years.

Defense lawyers for Khmer Rouge leaders Nuon Chea and Khieu Samphan boycotted an opening hearing for the two men on Friday, leaving the courtroom and putting the second and final phase of the trial for the two men in limbo. Nuon Chea’s team has asked for a disqualification of four judges, while Khieu Samphan’s team has asked for an appeal on an initial judgment against him. Neither request has yet been heard, but tribunal officials say they will be. It remains unclear what will happen next with the hearing. (Kong Sothanarith, Phnom Penh)
