Hun Sen, Li Keqiang plan to meet at Peace Palace during summit

Prime Minister Hun Sen and China’s Premier Li Keqiang will meet together at the Peace Palace in Phnom Penh to discuss various aspects of the “Comprehensive Strategic Partnership of Cooperation” between the two countries next week.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said in a November 5 press statement that Li will pay an official visit to Cambodia from November 8-11. During the meeting with Hun Sen, the two leaders will also discuss some regional and international issues of common concern.

“[Hun Sen and Li] will preside over the signing ceremony for a number of bilateral cooperative agreements and a symbolic inauguration ceremony for the Phnom Penh-Sihanoukville Expressway at the conclusion of the meeting,” the ministry said.

Li will also be granted a royal audience with King Norodom Sihamoni at the Royal Palace and will later lay a wreath at Independence Monument and the Royal Memorial Statue of the late King Father Norodom Sihanouk.

He will also visit Siem Reap province and attend a ceremony for the completion of the Takeo Temple Restoration Project, along with Chea Sophara, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Land Management, Urban Planning and Construction attending on behalf of Hun Sen.
