With Leaders Abroad, No Political Negotiations Held

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, left, shakes hands with opposition party leader Sam Rainsy, right, after a meeting, as Sar Kheng, center, deputy prime minister, looks on at the National Assembly in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Monday, Sept. 16, 2013.
Political negotiations between the ruling party and opposition have not continued, following their failure to reach an agreement ahead of the Khmer New Year earlier this month.

Prime Minister Hun Sen is currently on state visits to eastern Europe, and Sam Rainsy, president of the Cambodia National Rescue Party, is in western Europe.

The two are not scheduled to meet while abroad, but officails say more talks could be held later this month, as the political stalemate between the two sides continues.
