Ambassador Todd’s Statement on Human Rights Day 2013
( 10-December-2013 by The Cambodia US Embassy )
There is no higher priority for the United States in Cambodia than promoting respect for human rights and democratic principles. One of my first actions when I assumed my duties as the U.S. Ambassador to Cambodia was to form an NGO Advisory Council with representatives from ADHOC, the Cambodian Center for Human Rights, LICADHO, the Cooperation Committee for Cambodia, the NGO Forum on Cambodia, the Cambodia Labor Confederation, the Committee for Free and Fair Elections, SILAKA, Oxfam, the National Democratic Institute, the International Republican Institute, and Human Rights Watch.
