U.S. rolls back aid, military support in Cambodia: White House

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States is curbing military support and other aid programs for Cambodia amid concerns about recent democratic setbacks in the Southeast Asian nation, the White House said in a statement on Tuesday.

“Recent setbacks to democracy in Cambodia, however, caused us deep concern, including Senate elections on February 25 that failed to represent the genuine will of the Cambodian people,” the White House said.
