U.S. Ambassador Says Economic Support Will Not Wane Despite Political Crisis
Despite criticism from Washington over Cambodia’s crackdown on the opposition and accusations that the U.S. helped plot Prime Minister Hun Sen’s downfall, the U.S. Ambassador, William Heidt, has said that America’s support for Cambodia’s economy will not be negatively impacted. In an interview with VOA Khmer in Phnom Penh on Wednesday, Heidt said the embassy’s mission to strengthen the bilateral relationship with Cambodia remained of paramount importance.
