UN delegation to meet government this week

A high-level Secretariat delegation will meet with Deputy Prime Minister Sok An Dec. 9 and 10 to discuss "a number of issues of common concern to the UN and the Cambodian authorities," according to a release from the ECCC. The delegation will be led by Assistant Secretary General for Legal Affairs Peter Taksoe-Jensen. A briefing will be held for journalists on the 10.
