PHNOM PENH —
Negotiators for the ruling party and opposition say they are preparing for a summit to settle their differences over election reforms, following meetings this week with a team of Japanese development experts.
Officials from the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party say they will still push for election reforms, a recall election and more media equity, particularly with radio and television licenses.
Rescue Party President Sam Rainsy spoke on the phone with Cabinet Minister Sar Kheng, as a step toward agreement, CPP lawmaker Cheam Yiep told VOA Khmer.
They spoke to “prepare topics and programs for a future summit,” he said.
However, Sam Rainsy and Hun Sen have spoken before and been unable to bridge the gap between parties that has led to a prolonged political deadlock.
