U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham last week submitted a resolution to the U.S. Committee on Foreign Relations requesting the suspension of U.S. military assistance to Cambodia until an independent investigation into July’s national election is conducted. The resolution was submitted on Wednesday to express “the sense of the Senate that United States military assistance for Cambodia should be suspended until an independent and credible investigation occurs into the July 28, 2013, parliamentary elections, and election reforms are being implemented by the Government of Cambodia,” the resolution says. The resolution references independent domestic and international NGO reports “raising serious concerns”
