US-ASEAN Business Council President Alexander Feldman wants Cambodia and the US to maintain and improve their relationship.

Mr Alexander spoke with Prime Minister Hun Sen on Friday, Sept.28, on the sidelines of United Nations General Assembly in New York.

He wishes that the relationship between the US and Cambodia improve, and is confident about it because W. Patrick Murphy has been appointed ambassador to Cambodia.  He was previously Deputy Assistant Secretary of State for Southeast Asia and therefore has clear knowledge of the prevailing conditions.

The premier responded by pointing out that Cambodia wants to remain on amicable terms with the US, and that he has always urged for the maintenance of a healthy relationship between both countries and agrees with those US businessmen who seek improvements in said rapport.

Hun Sen also told Mr Feldman about Cambodia’s efforts to locate the remains of US service personnel missing since the Vietnam War, and that these activities will resume when credible and mutual assurances of lifting the ban on ÚS visas are perceived.

Since last year the relationship between both countries has become tense after the US restricted the issuance of visas in the aftermath of the dissolution of the CNRP.
