Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senators John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, and Dick Durbin (D-IL) introduced a resolution today reaffirming the United States’ commitment to promoting democracy, human rights and rule of law in Cambodia.

The Cambodian Government, led by Prime Minister Hun Sen, has launched a brutal crackdown on political opposition and civil society ahead of national elections scheduled for July 2018. This resolution condemns all forms of political violence in Cambodia, urges the immediate release of opposition leader Kem Sokha, and calls for free, fair, and monitored 2018 elections.

“Despite decades of U.S. and international attention to promote a pluralistic and democratic system, the situation in Cambodia remains dire,” said Chairman McCain. “Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has ruled the country with impunity for over three decades and throughout his rule, Hun Sen has resorted to any and all means to suppress the legitimate political opposition, harass civil society, restrain the media environment, and deny the democratic aspirations of the Cambodian people. This resolution is critical to seeking justice and protecting the basic human rights and freedoms of the Cambodian people.”

“The deliberate undermining of democracy being perpetrated by the Cambodian government must stop,” said Senator Durbin. “We call on Prime Minister Hun Sen and the governing party to respect the rule of law, human rights, and basic democratic norms. The world is watching.”

#usa #tpp : Le Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) est mort

Le TPP est mort ! 

Mais le véritable enjeu d’un traité qui, dès le départ, a laissé Pékin sur la touche, est diplomatique. Le Partenariat transpacifique était au cœur de la stratégie du « pivot » vers l’Asie défendue par M. Obama. Avec l’ambition assumée de contrebalancer l’influence grandissante de la Chine.

 

Retrait du Traité transpacifique : Trump fait-il un cadeau à la Chine ?

The failure is a strategic win for China and a defeat for Japan’s Shinzo Abe

Ci-dessous la déclaration de J. McCain

Washington, D.C. ­– U.S. Senator John McCain (R-AZ), Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, released the following statement today on President Trump’s decision to withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP):

“President Trump’s decision to formally withdraw from the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a serious mistake that will have lasting consequences for America’s economy and our strategic position in the Asia-Pacific region.

“This decision will forfeit the opportunity to promote American exports, reduce trade barriers, open new markets, and protect American invention and innovation. It will create an opening for China to rewrite the economic rules of the road at the expense of American workers. And it will send a troubling signal of American disengagement in the Asia-Pacific region at a time we can least afford it.

“Abandoning TPP is the wrong decision. Moving forward, it is imperative that America advances a positive trade agenda in the Asia-Pacific that will keep American workers and companies competitive in one of the most economically vibrant and fastest-growing regions in the world.”

 

Trump kills TPP, giving China its first big win
