Selected Comments and Press Briefing during the Extraordinary Session of the Fifth Legislative National Assembly [Unofficial Translation]

Firstly, I would like to express my warmest greeting to the presence of members of the National Assembly from the Cambodia National Rescue Party (CNRP). I also convey my warm welcome to the idea raised in the speech of HE Sam Rainsy. I think if everything according to this spirit happened a year ago, Cambodian could have had one good year already (after the elections of the fifth legislative term of the National Assembly). What happened on 22 July 2014 was not much different to the spirit of the negotiation on 17 September 2013. Putting the two negotiation results next to one another, there is not much difference. Unfortunately, the situation had gone worse and sadness came to the country before conscience reigns. I strongly hope that HE Sam Rainsy and members of the CNRP will keep record of everything that we discussed on 16 and 17 of September 2013, on the phone on 9 April 2014 and again on 22 July 2014.
