Strife-torn Cambodia is warning that the fragile country will descend into anarchy if the international community fails to maintain aid contributions to Phnom Penh. 'It is very dangerous,' Finance Minister Keat Chhon said yesterday. 'If they do not pay attention there will be some kind of civil war.' Mr Keat Chhon pleaded for more foreign aid and said the country's turmoil was caused by notorious Khmer Rouge leader Pol Pot and 'a post-Cold War trap' by foreign powers. He said Cambodian strongman Hun Sen had saved the country from anarchy with his ousting of rival Prince Norodom Ranariddh in July. A fund spokesman yesterday said that the IMF had not broken off ties with Cambodia but a three-year lending programme was on hold. 'The IMF is not pulling out of Cambodia. Relations continue with the country,' the spokesman said.
