Prime Minister Hun Sen’s health is “very good”, according to a post on his Facebook page yesterday following a trip to Singapore for a medical checkup.
“Doctors said my health is very good although I am older. There is no disease to worry about. Doctors are happy that I quit smoking, which has contributed to the improvement in my health,” read the post.
One Facebook commenter asked how long ago he had quit smoking, to which the 63-year-old prime minister replied, “Two years ago. Don’t try smoking. It harms your health.”
According to the post, when Singaporean doctors recommended the prime minister swim more, Hun Sen replied that his house had no swimming pool, prompting the doctor instead to urge him to play more golf.
On a post on Tuesday, Hun Sen had defended his decision to seek medical services abroad, stressing that he went only because local doctors recommended it.
“Just because I have a medical checkup in Singapore, it does not mean that I do not have trust in Cambodian doctors.”
