Phnom Penh (FN), Aug 1 – Cambodian Government spokesman Phay Siphan asked officials at the US Embassy in Phnom Penh to maintain good relations with the kingdom, and if they do not like Cambodia, pack and go back home to America.

He continued that it is hard for him to work with small officials in the US Embassy, who have gone wild for incitement, speaking in a press conference “One-Year Achievement after Elections”, held Thursday at the Council of Ministers.

“We ask the American diplomats to maintain good relations with Cambodia, and if they do not like Cambodia, pack and go back home,” Siphan stated.

"The US Embassy in Cambodia does not have an ambassador yet, and it is difficult for us to work with small officials who have gone wild for incitement," he said.

The Government spokesperson also warned that to destroy any groups who harm peace, stability, and social order in Cambodia.

His statement reacted to the statement of US Embassy Phnom Penh, statement released on 30 July 2019, regarding the wrong assessment on Cambodia’s general elections held in 2018.

The US Embassy stated that “Today, the US government notes the one-year anniversary of deeply flawed national elections in Cambodia. That vote was neither free nor fair, and it failed to represent the will of the Cambodian people.”

“The elections excluded the country’s principle opposition party and further eroded the country’s achievements in promoting political reconciliation and economic growth since the 1991 Paris Peace Accords. We call on the government to take tangible actions to restore democracy, including dropping all charges against Kem Sokha and other political prisoners, and ending the practice of using baseless, politically motived charges to harass its citizens,” according to the on US Embassy’s Facebook page.
