Donors want solutions

Cambodia's two biggest donor countries have expressed concern about the continuing political deadlock and urged Cambodia to form a government that can deal with the pressing problems faced by the country.

Sam Rainsy, president of the opposition Sam Rainsy Party, had separate meetings with the French ambassador Yvon Roe D'Albert and Japanese ambassador Fumiaki Takahashi at the party headquarters on Wednesday.

Rainsy told reporters that both countries wanted a fair solution to be found to the political deadlock. They wanted their funds to be effective in Cambodia and to do this they needed an effective government.

He said he explained the Alliance of Democrats policies to the ambassadors, which demand reform to the justice system, the reduction of poverty and promises to combat corruption. He said the CPP party has not achieved these goals despite being in power for ten years.
