PM smoothing ties with his royal request

Prime Minister Hun Sen called on Thai Princess Maha Chakri Sirindhorn yesterday to continue supporting Cambodia with health and education projects over the next five years.

“Prime Minister Hun Sen has requested Princess Sirindhorn of Thailand extend her assistance projects and continue to support Cambodia since all of the projects  have been successful,” Eang Sophalleth, the premier’s spokesman said yesterday after a meeting between the premier and the princess’ project director, Vapirom Manasrangsi.

Eang Sophalleth said that Vapirom Manasrangsi’s visit was to discuss malaria assistance projects, which are set to expire this month.

Vapirom Manasrangsi invited Cambodia’s minister of education to preside over a ceremony later this month for Cambodians receiving scholarships to study in Thailand, Eang Sophalleth added.

Hun Sen’s request marked the first time he has asked for humanitarian assistance from Thailand since the border conflict reignited this year.
