Chheang Vun, chairman of National Assembly’s commission on Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation, Information and Media today met with French National Assembly vice president Sylvain Waserman to discuss about Everything-but-arms scheme.
After meeting with National Assembly president Heng Samrin, Mr Sylvain met with Mr Vun to discuss about the Kingdom’s political situation, including EBA issue.
Mr Vun said that Mr Sylvain told him that he needed more information and will organise his group to help advocate with other parliaments, especially EU’s Assembly about Cambodia’s issue.
Mr Vun also told Mr Sylvain that the government has never received any international pressure.
“I told him that Prime Minister Hun Sen, CPP president and especially the Cambodian government absolutely does not use the country’s sovereignty and independence to exchange with fund or pressure,” Mr Vun said.
Mr Vun said that the EU also wanted Cambodia to reform some of the laws, including union law.
