(*) Excerpt from Sam Rainsy's speech in French in the presence of French Senator André Gattolin (REM) at a Cambodian pagoda on the outskirts of Paris, 13 September 2020:

"The struggle for democracy is also a struggle for the rule of law, and for international law. Democratic governments do not provoke their neighbours, or undertake expansionist policies that are a danger to peace. Democracy is therefore a support for peace.

The Paris Peace Agreements on Cambodia of 1991 provide an example. The regime of Prime Minister Hun Sen is not democratic and he can not count on the support of the Cambodian people. Hun Sen’s oppression has led to growing popular discontent with his regime. But he wants to cling to power at any cost, even in the absence of the support of his own people. He has no option but to seek foreign support to stay in power, wherever it can be found. This is very dangerous for Cambodia, but necessary for the survival of his regime. At present, that support comes from China. But China’s backing does not come for free. Beijing demands in return Cambodia’s support for its expansionist policies.

A government of Cambodia that is democratically elected, that has the legitimacy of support from its own people, will have no need of foreign support. The Paris agreements clearly state that Cambodia must follow a system of pluralist democracy. Once we have put such a regime in place, we will demand Cambodia’s independence. We do not wish to be under the control of any foreign power, and above all not so as to further the aggressive aims of that power.

China’s expansionist aims, for example in the South China Sea, are a threat to the whole international community. The time is therefore right to reactivate the Paris agreements to protect not only Cambodia, but to isolate a bellicose China and strengthen the rule of international law."
