UN, Cambodia begin talks on accord for special court for Khmer Rouge
Representatives from the United Nations and Cambodia today began intensive talks in Phnom Penh on a draft agreement for a special court to try former leaders of the Khmer Rouge.
At an initial meeting, the team led by UN Legal Counsel Hans Corell and the Cambodian side worked through the text of a draft agreement between the Government and the UN, according to a UN spokesman in New York.
The two delegations then broke for consultations before resuming in the evening. "They covered all the articles of the draft agreement and reached understanding on quite a few of them," Fred Eckhard said.
