CPP hosts Reds

The Cambodian People's Party (CPP) will host regional members of the international

political network Socialist International (SI) this week to discuss peace and stability

in the Asia Pacific regions.

The meeting starts today (October 8) at the InterContinental Hotel and concludes

tomorrow, marking the first time Cambodia has hosted a SI event.

The CPP stressed it is not a member of SI and the conference does not signal a return

to the party's communist days.

"I don't think we have any intention to join," said Khieu Kanharith, spokesperson

for the CPP. "They [SI] just want to show solidarity to the Cambodian people."
