International Relations Of The Cambodian National Assembly

The National Assembly is the State’s Supreme Institution. Like the government institution, this Institution has relations with foreign Parliaments in order to build good rapports and relationship between the Cambodian people and the people of other nations, and between Cambodian Parliament and foreign Parliaments. In this process, Article 87 of the Constitution has bestowed this task directly to the President of the National Assembly, by stating that:

“The President of the National Assembly shall chair the assembly sessions, takes cognizance of laws and resolutions adopted by the National Assembly, ensure the implementation of the Internal Rules of Procedures and manage the international relations of the National Assembly.”

In this regard, item 6 of the Internal Rules of Procedures of the National Assembly addressing the establishment of various Commissions provides that the fifth Commission be responsible for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation along with other related responsibilities. This Commission has two main tasks as follows:

1.     Monitoring the policy of Foreign Affairs of the Government, and

2.     Performing cooperation with foreign Parliaments and international agencies.

The parliamentary relations shall constitute bilateral and multilateral ones.
