Myanmar to send army chief for talks, golf

Myanmar's top army chief will pay a four-day official visit to Cambodia to boost ties between the countries’ militaries – and to play a round of golf – according to a draft agenda from the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF).

The agenda says that Senior General Min Aung Hlaing will arrive on Wednesday and stay until Saturday.

During his trip, Hlaing is scheduled to meet with Minister of Defence General Tea Banh and pay a courtesy call on Prime Minister Hun Sen.

He is also scheduled to visit the National Defense University, play a “friendly” round of golf at the Garden City Golf Club in Phnom Penh and visit Angkor Wat. The next leg of his trip is the Philippines.
