Today, there is an election on a resolution related to the Rohingya issue, said Samdech Techo Hun Sen, stressing that the principle of non-interference is the major principle for Cambodia, therefore the Kingdom will vote against any resolution affecting Myanmar’s integrity.
Cambodia is considering providing humanitarian assistance to Rakhine’s people, some of them are living in Myanmar while others fled to Bangladesh, he added.
