Hun Sen juggles global, regional politics

Who could have imagined that the world’s longest reigning prime minister, Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen — or Prime Minister Hun Sen as he is more commonly known — would stand in the front row defending Ukraine against Russia as the biggest war in Europe since World War II rages on?

On top of that, Hun Sen still has to juggle the Myanmar quagmire and the 17th East Asia Summit, not to mention messy domestic politics in between.

This will be Hun Sen’s third summit, and presumably his last, a rare act for any Asean leader to follow. Apart from meeting with his colleagues on Nov 11, he will have two full and tightly scheduled days on Nov 12 and 13, with the eyes of the whole world on him and his country.
