Hun Sen responds to Vietnamese Facebook user on South China Sea

Accused of undermining a common ASEAN position on the South China Sea dispute by supporting China’s position, Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday got personal with a critic of his policy on the contested waterway.

Writing on Facebook, the premier took issue with a comment by a Vietnamese user and delivered a direct response.

“If you or your country has issue with China, please solve it peacefully. Do not blame me and do not involve Cambodia to your own country’s internal issue,” the premier wrote.

In July, Cambodia blocked the inclusion of a reference to a recent decision by the Hague in an ASEAN joint statement.

The decision dismissed the majority of China’s claim to the waterway.
