On January 7, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen arrived in Myanmar for a two-day visit, during which he met the country’s military ruler, Min Aung Hlaing.
It was the first visit to Myanmar by a foreign leader since the February 2021 military coup that ousted the country’s elected government.
The visit carried additional weight given that in October, Cambodia officially assumed the chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The group, which includes Cambodia and Myanmar, has spearheaded efforts to end the bloodshed after the coup.
