Top Cambodian diplomat Prak Sokhonn is set to attend the 7th Mekong-Lancang Cooperation (MLC) Foreign Ministers’ Meeting on July 4 in Bagan, Myanmar.
The foreign minister is in Myanmar from June 29-July 3 for his second trip in his capacity as ASEAN’s special envoy on the strife-torn country.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation on July 1 revealed that the 7th MLC Foreign Ministers’ Meeting would be held under the theme “Solidarity for Peace and Prosperity”.
“It will be a platform for the MLC Foreign Ministers to evaluate the progress made in the implementation of the Five-Year Plan of Action of the Mekong-Lancang Cooperation 2018-2022, chart future directions for broadening cooperation, and further strengthen the bonds of friendship and mutual support between the Mekong countries and China, in the spirit of promoting socio-economic development, particularly at the time of unprecedented global threat,” the ministry said.
The foreign minister and his MLC counterparts are also due to attend an unveiling ceremony for the MLC National Coordination Unit (Myanmar) Building.
Sokhonn is expected to have bilateral meetings with several foreign ministers, seeking to promote relations and cooperation within the MLC framework for sustainable development in the region and beyond.
