Foreign Minister meets Ban Ki-moon

Posted Date: Tuesday, 28-Sep-2010

Foreign Minister Hor Namhong asked United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon to help secure funds for the US$44 million Khmer Rouge tribunal budget shortfall. His request came on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly meeting in New York on Monday.

Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong said: “Cambodia has made a request about [the budget shortfall] to Japan and Ban Ki-moon.” Chan Tani, secretary of state at the Council of Ministers, reported this month that the Khmer Rouge tribunal faced a combined budget shortage for 2010-11 of $44 million.

Cambodia and donor countries met on September 7 to discuss the shortfall. According to the Foreign Ministry statement, Hor Namhong also spoke with Ban about the country’s progress on its Millennium Development Goals, which the Cambodian representative described as “remarkable”.
