Envoys refute China’s water hegemony on Mekong River with in-person visits

“When I heard Western countries talking about the damage by the Chinese dams to the Mekong River, I felt like it is serious. But when I came to see, the fact is very different from what they said. The dams are very good to protect the environment and rare animals, and especially for preventing floods and drought in downstream countries,” Sreng Sataro, minister counselor of the Embassy of Cambodia in China, told the Global Times after his visit. “You see the Western media ignore the facts as they did with my country,” he noted.
