Commenting on recent events in Phnom Penh, Mr Swire said:

"The UK is following the situation in Cambodia closely and we are deeply concerned by the disproportionate use of force by the security forces in Phnom Penh on 3 and 4 January. The government of Cambodia must respect the right to peaceful freedom of assembly and protestors must also exercise restraint. I call on the political parties to work together and resume dialogue as soon as possible in order to resolve the current political impasse and deliver long-term reforms in the interests of all Cambodians."
