Australian foreign minister set to visit

Australian Foreign Minister Julie Bishop will spend two days on an official visit to Cambodia later this week, her first since she took office as part of the Liberal-National coalition in September.

According to a statement released by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs yesterday, Bishop will visit on Friday and Saturday.

She plans separate meetings with Prime Minister Hun Sen, Minister of Interior Sar Kheng and her Cambodian counterpart Hor Namhong.

Australia is a major financial contributor to the UN-backed Khmer Rouge tribunal and conducts a number of development projects across the country through its AusAID program.
