More than 11 months after a disputed general election, Cambodia's main political parties seem closer to agreement about the shape of the country's next government. The breakthrough came at the start of June after talks between Prime Minister Hun Sen of the ruling Cambodian People's Party and his long-term political rival, opposition leader Prince Norodom Ranariddh of the royalist FUNCINPEC. A statement by the two men after the meeting, that followed months of talks, said the two parties had settled their differences on a number of issues that needed to be resolved before the FUNCINPEC would enter a coalition government led by Hun Sen.
