How many "Director Generals and above" are there in the Ministrt of Foreign Affairs?

And this is something I could see Cambodia responding disproportionately to.

Yes, this is the visa sanction mentioned on August 24th/25th.

It only impacts certain government visas, as expected. It is all centered around USA deportation of criminals and Cambodia acceptance of them back.

It's kinda unfortunate timing.
This is going to be interpreted as a reaction against HE's proclamations.
No doubt he'll double down now.
