Nous vous demandons de concerter avec nos alliés régionaux et la communauté internationale plus large afin d’utiliser tous les moyens diplomatiques nécessaires pour forcer le gouvernement de HUN Sen à respecter les normes démocratiques et l’Etat de droit.
We urge you to work with our regional allies and the wider international community to use all necessary diplomatic means to compel the HUN Sen gouvernment to adhere to democratic norms and rule of law.
We urge you to address these concerns with Prime Minister Hun Sen and to press the Cambodian gouvernment to respect the rights of its own citizens by allowing for freedom of the press and respecting a free and fair election. Cambodia must take these steps if it wishes to seek greater economic and strategic ties with the United States.
Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the House of Representatives
(1) reaffirms the commitment of the United States to promoting democracy, human rights, and the rule of law in Cambodia; (2) condemns all forms of political violence in Cambodia and urges the cessation of ongoing human rights violations; (3) calls on the Government of Cambodia to respect freedom of the press and the rights of its citizens to freely assemble, protest, and speak out against the government; (4) supports electoral reform efforts in Cambodia and free and fair elections in 2018 monitored by international observers; and (5) urges Prime Minister Hun Sen and the Cambodian People’s Party to
(A) end all harassment and intimidation of Cambodia’s opposition; (B) drop all politically motivated charges against opposition lawmakers; (C) allow them to return to Cambodia and freely participate in the political process; and (D) foster an environment where democracy can thrive and flourish.
