International Community Must Help Cambodian Democracy, Opposition Leader Says

Opposition leader Sam Rainsy joined a panel of experts in Washington on Wednesday to discuss further promotion of democracy in Cambodia. The talk, joined by about 100 participants at the Wilson Center, a think tank in the capital, was aimed at finding ways to create free and fair elections in Cambodia in national polls July 28. Sam Rainsy told the group that democracy in Cambodia has been "derailed," and the international community must help put it back on track. (Sok Khemara, Washington)
