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.
