Prime Minister Hun Sen is slated to leave for New York to attend a United Nations summit on development starting on Friday, and also plans to meet with Cambodians living in the US, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said yesterday.

According to a ministry statement, Hun Sen will deliver a speech to the summit to adopt the body’s post-2015 development agenda on Saturday, and will also deliver remarks on the sideline of the Global Leaders’ Meeting on Gender Equality and Women’s Empowerment on Sunday.

The premier is also scheduled to meet in New York with Cambodians from around the country, Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman Chum Sounry said yesterday, while declining to specify who would be granted access to the meeting. “It is a common thing that when he [Hun Sen] is there, he’s chit-chatting with Cambodian people,” Sounry said.
