US embassy to cease updating Facebook page

The US Embassy in Cambodia has announced that it will stop updating its Facebook page for the moment.

A post on the page on Thursday said: “Due to the lapse in appropriations, this account will not be updated regularly. We will not update this account until full operations resume, with the exception of urgent safety and security information.”

It said that all scheduled passport and visa services at the embassy will continue.

Embassy spokeswoman Emily Zeeberg declined to provide additional information relating to the “lapse in appropriations” mentioned in its post. Another embassy spokesman and public affairs officer Arend Zwartjes claimed that the embassy was having “technical problems”.
