China meetings continue with premier’s trip

Prime Minister Hun Sen will leave for China on Monday to lead a delegation to attend the two-day ASEAN-China Expo in Nanning, Guangxi province, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said yesterday, in the latest of a flurry of diplomatic exchanges between the two countries.

The trip, which will focus on regional economic and trade cooperation, will include a meeting with his Chinese counterpart, Premier Li Keqiang. The prime minister will be accompanied by Minister of Commerce Cham Prasidh.

Foreign Minister Hor Namhong visited China this week for the Special ASEAN-China Foreign Ministers Meeting, while Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi visited the Kingdom earlier this month, where he congratulated the ruling party on its election win and pledged his nation’s support for Cambodia in preventing any act of “external disturbance”.

Foreign ministry spokesman Koy Kuong declined to give further details about the planned meetings yesterday, while the premier’s spokesman could not be reached.
