PHNOM PENH - King Norodom Sihamoni brought Prime Minister Hun Sen face-to-face with the head of the opposition for the first time in years on Saturday, urging Cambodia's political rivals to find a peaceful solution to their post-election stalemate.
No agreement was reached at the brief meeting at the Royal Palace, but Hun Sen is expected to meet Sam Rainsy again Monday for further talks, opposition officials said.
