No call yet on sanctions on Cambodian garments: EU envoy
The European Union (EU) ambassador to Cambodia George Edgar has assured National Union Alliance Chamber of Cambodia (NUACC) president Som Aun that no decision on garment sector sanctions has been taken. Former opposition leader Sam Rainsy and civil society groups called for such sanctions after the Cambodia National Rescue Party was dissolved last month.

In a recent meeting with the EU ambassador, Aun requested him not to involve workers in the country’s political issues, according to Cambodian media reports.

Edgar assured to convey the unions’ requests and concerns to EU headquarters in Brussels.

The Garment Manufacturers Association in Cambodia had earlier called on international buyers to continue ordering clothes and textile products made in the country over fears that the United States and the EU could halt preferential treatment for Cambodian exports.

Three union leaders also sent petitions to the EU and US ambassadors requesting for orders to continue as usual. (DS)
