PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) — Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen says secret talks with the country's political opposition have resolved most of their differences, and the two sides may soon reach an agreement for opposition parties to take up their seats in parliament.

Hun Sen said Monday that only one point, which he did not specify, remains unresolved between his ruling Cambodian People's People Party and opposition leader Sam Rainsy's Cambodia National Rescue Party.

The opposition is challenging the results of a general election last July that they allege was rigged by the ruling party. They have for several months been staging protests demanding that Hun Sen step down and call new elections, and have boycotted parliament.
