Background: Delegates from Asian Parliamentary Union countries gathered in Phnom Penh on Monday (31 July) for the opening of the 12th session conference.
The assembled delegated heard speeches from the Chairman, Mr Phlek Phoeun, and from other officials of the body before discussing the issues on the agenda.
Nine Asian countries were represented at the session -- they were primarily to discuss the contents of the motions they will put to the 8th General Meeting, scheduled to be held in Japan next month.
On Tuesday (1 August), the delegates were scheduled to sign the final proposals and have them presented to Marshal Lon Nol, President of the Khmer Republic, for final ratification.
