Biden To Visit Cambodia For Dual Summits

U.S. President Joe Biden will visit Phnom Penh next month for two regional summits, according to the White House, which said the trip will underscore America’s “enduring commitment to Southeast Asia” amid a growing rivalry for influence between Beijing and Washington.

Biden will join leaders of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) for one of the last summits of Cambodia’s chairmanship of the group, as well as the East Asia Summit, which has historically included leaders from Russia, China, Japan and India and Australia.
