In Brief: US senator to visit Cambodia on tour

US Senator and Vietnam War veteran Jim Webb is set to visit Cambodia during a two-week state visit to Southeast Asia later this month, according to officials. Jim Webb, a Democratic senator from Virginia who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Subcommittee on East Asia and Pacific Affairs, left for Myanmar on Sunday, and will then make a visit to neighbouring Thailand, Lao, Vietnam, as well as Cambodia. "We very much look forward to Senator Webb's visit and are working on the timing and schedule for the visit," a US Embassy spokesman said on Sunday. Koy Kuong, spokesman for Cambodia's Ministry of Foreign Affairs, could not be reached for comment on Sunday.
