Hun Sen, the Cambodian leader, appeared to rule out talks with the co-premier he overthrew in July, saying Prince Norodom Ranariddh had to face trial for his alleged crimes.

Hun Sen, the former Second Prime Minister, responding to a call from King Norodom Sihanouk for peace talks with his ousted rival Prince Ranariddh, also said that factional fighting in the north-west of the country would cease when royalist forces gave up and returned to the government side.
