Hun Sen voices opposition to Russia’s annexation of Ukrainian territory

Prime Minister Hun Sen reiterated his stern opposition to Russia’s annexation of four parts of Ukraine’s territory.

“I have already declared that we will not support and we are against establishing states within states, territorial segregation and the use of force or threats to use force against other states,” he said while meeting with nearly 3,000 people living in Angkor Archaeological Park and other areas under the management of Apsara National Authority, who have agreed to move to Run Ta Ek eco-village in Banteay Srei district.

“Can you imagine if we were just living our lives peacefully but then some other people used force to invade Siem Reap province and then conducted a referendum to make Siem Reap an independent state. Could we accept something like that? We absolutely would not accept it,” he continued.

Hun Sen noted that the state of Kosovo, which was formed by the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in Southeastern Europe, still does not have diplomatic acknowledgement from Cambodia.
