Cambodia PM Backtracks Pledge To Visit Students In Stricken Wuhan

The Prime Minister of Cambodia Hun Sen will not be able to meet with Cambodian students in the coronavirus-stricken city of Wuhan, China, after Beijing authorities declined to approve such a visit.

Cambodia’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Koy Kuong said that China could not organize the trip “because China is busy fighting the spread of this virus, therefore, the Chinese side in Wuhan city, Hubei province, doesn’t have enough time to provide good hospitality to [Hun Sen].”

Kuong also said China offered Hun Sen the opportunity to visit Beijing instead but that the prime minister chose to fly back to Cambodia.
