Hun Sen to make visit to Vietnam

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs announced yesterday that Prime Minister Hun Sen will make a three-day visit to Vietnam this week, where he is expected to sign several agreements and hold talks with senior officials there.

According to the ministry, Hun Sen will sign an extradition treaty, a trade deal, cooperation plans between the two countries’ education and information ministries, and four other agreements.

Hun Sen is also expected to have a meeting with his Vietnamese counterpart, Nguyen Tan Dung, and will meet separately with other officials.

Though pro-opposition social media commenters insinuated yesterday that the visit showed ruling party subservience to Vietnam, independent political analyst Chea Vannath said the visit was routine. However, she added, talks might turn to the political situation in Cambodia, which the Vietnamese may see as threatening to business interests.

“Hun Sen is experienced in leading … there is no need to ask for advice from Vietnam.”
