Defense Minister Tea Banh used the annual meeting of national military police in Phnom Penh on Wednesday to reiterate that the armed forces would remain committed to defending Prime Minister Hun Senís government in the ongoing political dispute with the opposition CNRP, local media and military officials said Thursday. Speaking at National Military Police Headquarters in Tuol Kok district, General Banh condemned the CNRPís rolling street demonstrations and marches last month, calling on Mr. Hun Sen to stand down or call a new election, Cambodia Express News (CEN), an online site for leading Khmer-language newspaper Rasmei Kampuchea, reported Thursday.
