Cambodia urges restraint

Cambodia urged the international community to show restraint in dealing with last week’s shelling of South Korea’s Yeonpyeong island by North Korea’s military. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs issued a statement on Friday urging stakeholders to “stop any act of provocation” and that ongoing hostilities could endanger the “peace and security of the whole region”. North Korea fired dozens of shells at the small Yellow Sea island last week, injuring several people and setting buildings on fire. The attack followed the North’s announcement last week that it had built a working uranium enrichment plant. China yesterday called for the resumption of the six-nation talks next month to ease tensions, while United States and South Korean navies yesterday began a series of war-game exercises involving at least 11 warships.
