U.S. calls for release of Cambodian opposition leader

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. State Department on Friday called on Cambodia to release an imprisoned opposition leader and reverse its decision to ban the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party.

“The Cambodia’s government decision marks a sharp reversal of the ideals in Cambodia’s constitution,” State Department spokeswoman Heather Nauert told reporters.
