Today the European Union’s Foreign Affairs Council (which is made up of Member State Ministers responsible for Foreign Affairs, Defence and Development) adopted a number of conclusions on Cambodia, including the following :
- The EU is Cambodia's biggest export market. The Council notes that Cambodia has been granted preferential access to the EU market under the "Everything But Arms" (EBA) scheme. In this context, the Council recalls that respect of human rights and fundamental freedoms, including labour rights, is also a crucial part of EU’s trade policy and underpins the granting of EU trade preferences. The Council invites the Commission to enhance the monitoring of the situation and to step-up the engagement with Cambodia in light of the provisions of Regulation (EU) No 978/2012.
- In view of recent developments, the Council may consider specific targeted measures if the situation does not improve.
The real and only conclusion is: Hun Sen must stop holding the Cambodian people hostage in order for him to perpetuate his brutal and anachronistic dictatorship.
