Hun Sen to pen accords with Abe

Infrastructure-funding agreements and a memorandum on military cooperation will be signed when Prime Minister Hun Sen visits Japan next week, the government said yesterday.

The premier will meet his Japanese counterpart, Shinzo Abe, in Tokyo late next week, a statement released yesterday by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said.

The leaders will witness the signing of four documents, relating to the improvement of National Road 1, the improvement of Preah Sihanouk Referral Hospital, equipment to restore the western causeway of Angkor Wat and a memorandum on defence cooperation between the two countries, it added.

Hun Sen and his wife, Bun Rany, will also attend the 40th ASEAN-Japan Commemorative Summit and the Fifth Mekong-Japan Summit from December 12 to 14.

During Abe’s visit to Cambodia last month, Hun Sen asked Japan, Cambodia’s largest bilateral donor, to help with electoral reform, while the two countries expressed their desire for an “early conclusion” to the Code of Conduct for the settlement of the South China Sea conflict.
