Czech mate: fischer to visit cambodia

The leader of the Czech Republic is scheduled to arrive in Cambodia this month for an official visit aimed at strengthening cooperation between the two nations, officials said Monday. Czech Prime Minister Jan Fischer is expected to arrive April 25 for a three-day visit, Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong said. “He will come to strengthen bilateral cooperation between our governments and to enhance trade cooperation between both countries,” he said. Fischer is expected to visit patients at Calmette Hospital in Phnom Penh as well as see temples in Siem Reap, some of which feature lion statues restored by artisans from both countries, according to an official itinerary. The Czech leader is also expected to meet with Prime Minister Hun Sen. Earlier this year, King Norodom Sihamoni visited the Czech Republic, where he lived for 13 years.
