Last week, Prime Minister Hun Sen touted Japan as a democratic model for Cambodia to emulate. Analysts have since said that Japan’s democratic model could be a positive influence on Cambodian politics.
In an interview with Japan’s Kyodo news on Friday, Hun Sen said Japan’s “strong economy and political stability” was a “model of real democracy”.
Chheang Vannarith, a regional analyst and researcher, said Japan was “one of the most successful democracies in Asia.”
