Thai Prime Minister Srettha Thavisin is set to visit Cambodia later this month, as both nations seek to strengthen bilateral ties.
Cambodian Government Spokesperson Pen Bona expressed anticipation for the visit, highlighting the proximity of the two countries and their recent changes in leadership. While there is currently no specific agenda or indication of agreements to be signed during the visit, the leaders aim to continue their cooperation.
During Prime Minister Srettha’s visit to Phnom Penh, he will meet with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Manet, who assumed office concurrently with the Thai premier last month. Discussions about the visit took place during a recent meeting in Bangkok between Sarun Charoensuwan, Thailand’s Permanent Secretary for Foreign Affairs, and Soeung Rathchavy, Cambodia’s Secretary of State at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.
Both sides used the meeting to explore various aspects of their bilateral relations, encompassing politics, security, economy, trade, investment, education, tourism, demining efforts, and technical cooperation. Thailand and Cambodia have enjoyed strong relations under the leadership of former Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, resulting in mutual benefits for both countries.
