Forcible deportation of Uighur may affect US-Cambodia ties
Washington: Forcible deportation of Uighurs to China by Cambodia would affect its relationship with the United States, the Obama Administration said today.
"We expect governments, including Cambodia, to uphold its international obligations, and this will affect our relationship with Cambodia as well as its international
standing," Assistant Secretary of State for Public Affairs P J Crowley said.
"We obviously expressed our disappointment and we are deeply disturbed that the Cambodian Government, in violation of its international obligations, forcibly removed 20 Uighur asylum seekers to China in December without the benefit of a credible process for determining their refugee status," Crowley told reporters here.
"We have expressed our disappointment and we will factor this into future decisions that we make about our relationship with Cambodia," he said.
