BEIJING (Xinhua) -- Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi's speech at the General Debate of the 69th Session of the UN General Assembly on Saturday sent a clear signal to the world that it will take up a more active role in addressing international affairs and hot spot issues.
Wang expounded China's stance and proposals on almost every hot spot issue, including Ukraine, Iraq, terrorism, Syria, Palestine, Iran, South Sudan, Afghanistan, the Korean Peninsula, Ebola and climate change.
This demonstrates Beijing's commitment, readiness and devotion to acting as a responsible player and assuming more responsibilities in helping address international woes.
In the past year, the Asian giant has spoken out with a louder voice and involved more actively and constructively in addressing global and regional affairs, contributing Chinese wisdom, providing solutions, and offering developing countries with more help within its capacity.
In his speech, Wang laid out four basic principles in international relations: treat each other as equals, be open and inclusive, pursue mutually beneficial cooperation and uphold justice.
As every nation has the right to exist and develop, China believes that all countries should treat each other as equals and with respect regardless of their size; respect different religions, cultures and civilizations; and never inflict one's ideology on other countries.
PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) -- The construction of Koh Kong's Cheay Areng hydrowpower dam will cost USD 400 million and be completed by 2020, said Energy Secretary of State Ith Prang Tuesday.
Speaking at a press conference, he said the study of the dam and its impact on environment has been conducted since 2006.
The Ministry of Mine and Energy issued a statement on September 27 to explain the impact of the dam which will be capable to produce 108 MW.
In the statement, the ministry said Cheay Areng dam covered an area of around 100,000 hectares including 9,474 hectares for tank building.
The plan affected 113 species of birds, 53 of mammals, 43 of fish, and 31 of reptiles in the area.
PHNOM PENH (Xinhua) -- Cambodian Environment Minister Say Sam Al said Monday that the government has canceled licenses of economic land concessions (ELCs) for eight companies after they have not undertaken development on the lands for years.
"The government revoked their investment licenses in the ELCs because they have received the land for years, but they have not undertaken development in the areas," he said in a press conference, adding that 12,457 hectares of the ELCs have been taken back from those companies and put under the Environment Ministry's management.
The Cambodian government has awarded ELCs to private investors in order to develop agricultural projects such as plantations, animal husbandry and building factories to process agricultural products, and companies could possess ELCs up to 99 years.
Since 1993 to 2012, the government had granted ELCs of 1.67 million hectares to 169 local and foreign firms, according to the figures recorded by the Ministry of Agriculture.

PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) -- Refugees living on Naura island vowed to protest against the Australian Government's USD 40 million resettlement deal with the Cambodian government, Australian-based ABC news reported Tuesday.
A group of refugees who have already been resettled on Naura on Monday held a protest march, describing the Cambodia deal as cruel and unfair, the website said.
The young refugees held banners which read "only our corpse might go to Cambodia."
A young girl held another sign which said "Suicide is sweeter than Australia's dirty policy."
The group from the Monday protest presented a letter to the Australian High Commission on Nauru, urging Australia to reconsider the Cambodian deal, which was signed between Cambodia's Interior Minister Sar Kheng and Australia's Immigration Minister Scott Morrison in Phnom Penh on Friday last week.
"Australian Government has driven this [sic] people to the point that they feel like they have reached the end," the ABC reported, citing the letter signed by the refugees.
An opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party district councillor in Phnom Penh was arrested yesterday in connection with a CNRP-led protest at Freedom Park on July 15 that turned violent.
At least 15 CNRP members or supporters have been charged in connection with the violence, which saw security guards attacked by mobs after they moved to crack down on previously peaceful protesters.
Chuon Narin, the Phnom Penh deputy police chief, said that Chbar Ampov district councillor Sum Puthy was arrested on a court warrant yesterday but did not specify the charges.
“He was sent to the police station and forwarded on to the court immediately since it was a court warrant,” he said.
According to Puthy’s wife, Mak Chan, he must have been arrested yesterday morning after dropping her off at a market and making his way to a council meeting. Colleagues sounded the alarm after he did not appear, she said.
Junta requests extradition of Thai dissident [Cambodia is not a safe haven for political asylum-seekers]
During a military ceremony on Sunday, Thailand publicly requested that Cambodia repatriate a student activist wanted on charges of offending the monarchy.
“Red Shirt” member Ekkapob Luara, also known as Tang Acheewa, is seeking political asylum in Cambodia after Thailand’s ruling junta put out an arrest warrant for him in June, Pavin Chachavalpongpun, a Thai political analyst and acquaintance of Ekkapob’s wrote in the Japan Times earlier this month.
Cambodia, however, denied any knowledge of the fugitive, who Pavin attested was chased by Thai spies during a stay in Sihanoukville.
“We have not received any official extradition request from Thailand,” said Foreign Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong. “I do not know if Mr Ekkapob is even in Cambodia at the moment.”
For years, Thai fugitives and members of the red-shirt movement have sought refuge in Cambodia in order to avoid strict – and often politically motivated – lese majestecharges, including exiled activist and long-time Phnom Penh resident Jakrapob Penkair.
Cambodia and Thailand have signed an extradition treaty, but it has not been observed religiously. Cambodia previously refused an extradition request for former Prime Minister Thaksin Shinawatra on the grounds that the charges were politically motivated.
Refugees on Nauru have said they will reject Australia’s offer of resettlement in Cambodia after a protest on the island was staged at the Australian Embassy yesterday amid reports of three more incidents of self-harm and attempted suicide.
An Iranian refugee, who cannot be named and who was speaking on behalf of residents of the “family camp” on the island, yesterday told the Post that the widely held perception of Cambodia as a poverty-stricken and violent country meant that nobody in the camp was currently willing to voluntarily accept the offer of resettlement.
“The people here think of a bad image of Cambodia in their mind, because it’s a very poor country. There is lots of crime, a history of killings and abuse,” he said. “Nobody here wants to go to Cambodia.”
Cambodian officials yesterday confirmed that a pilot phase of resettlement is scheduled to begin later this year.
“We have nothing to lose – there will be suicides if it carries on like this. They will only be able to send our dead bodies to Cambodia,” the refugee said.
UN News Center
26 September 2014 – The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) today expressed deep apprehension today over a new refugee agreement between Australia and Cambodia barring Nauru refugees seeking Australia’s protection from settling there, offering them instead settlement in Cambodia.
High Commissioner for Refugees António Guterres said, “Refugees are persons who are fleeing persecution or the life-threatening effects of armed conflict. They are entitled to better treatment than being shipped from one country to the next.”
UNHCR consistently advocates for asylum-seekers to have their claims assessed under the protection of the State where they arrive or which has jurisdiction over them. In this case, the refugees were forcibly transferred to Nauru for assessment under what UNHCR considers harmful conditions.
Mr. Guterres hopes that the Australian Government will reconsider this approach, “This development is a worrying departure from international norms. International responsibility sharing is the basis on which the whole global refugee system works.”
While UNHCR recognizes the challenges of people moving by sea in the region, it believes that solutions lie in broad-based regional cooperation, in which all States play their part.
Last week, Surya Subedi, the United Nations' special rapporteur on the situation of human rights in Cambodia, presented his last report to the Human Rights Council (HRC) in Geneva. At first sight, the report may appear to give a positive outlook for the human rights situation in the country. But if you read it between the lines, you will find one of the most powerful indictments of the Cambodian government in years.
In a nutshell, it shows the government’s failure to implement key recommendations that the special rapporteur made during his six-year term. These include reforms to the judiciary, parliament and the electoral system, and land rights. Despite his unassailable long-term optimism, Subedi doubts the prospect for meaningful reform, not because of objective factors, constraints or challenges – which usually justify that a country truly seeking to improve its human rights record be assisted by the UN (a recent example is war-plagued Mali) – but because of a lack of political will on the part of the government.
In a worrying turn of events, as the HRC’s 27th session drew to a close on Friday, no resolution on Cambodia was adopted. Neither Japan, the traditional “sponsor” of resolutions on Cambodia, nor any other state felt it necessary to endorse the concerns highlighted by Subedi.
From a technical, procedural perspective, the HRC did not have to adopt a resolution on Cambodia this year, as the special rapporteur’s mandate was extended last year for two years, and a memorandum of understanding between the government and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, which was signed in early 2014, extended the latter’s presence in Cambodia. But the council’s failure to act is a bad signal. It sends a message to the government that it can get away with its appalling human rights record, in a year that witnessed a sharp increase in the government’s use of violence against its opponents and voices of dissent.
