Phnom Penh (FN), Apr. 28 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen stated that only sports have common standards, while politics and democracy do not.

The premier spoke in a meeting with Cambodian athletes on Thursday (28 Apr) at Koh Pich Theater, Phnom Penh.

"In the world, only sports have common standards. There is no international standard on democracy and human rights," the premier underlined.

Democracy works differently as some countries adopt a presidential system, while some countries adopt a parliamentary system, the premier said.
