Asahi wrote that MOFA announced on Wednesday that Japan authorized grant assistance worth 800 million yen for the government of Cambodia to support its general election in July. Japan plans to provide ballot boxes and other items to help the nation carry out the election smoothly. The paper wrote that the EU and the United States expressed their intention to suspend assistance for the election following the Cambodian Supreme Court’s ruling in November last year to dissolve the opposition Cambodia National Rescue Party. The paper quoted a Japanese diplomatic source as saying that if Japan ended its support for Cambodia, China would likely increase its assistance to the nation.
