§ Mr. Steen
To ask the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs what matters were discussed when he met the Deputy Prime Minister of Cambodia and the Adviser and Director of the Cabinet for Cambodia; and if he will make a statement about(a) bi-lateral British and Cambodian relations and (b) relations between the European Union and Cambodia. 
§ Mr. Fatchett
When I met the Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister on 21 January, our discussions covered the internal political situation, the forthcoming Cambodian elections, human rights and other issues. These talks were part of a continuing dialogue between the UK and Cambodia. The EU also takes a keen interest in events in Cambodia and is providing 9.5 mecu in election assistance, subject to political conditionality.
