South Korean President Moon Jae-in’s summit with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen has been canceled as the latter decided to skip a regional meeting scheduled for this week in the southern South Korean city of Busan, the presidential office said Sunday.
“Due to Cambodian PM Hun Sen’s absence at the Korea-ASEAN special summit, the summit meeting between South Korea and Cambodia has been canceled,” presidential spokesperson Ko Min-jung said in a text message sent to the media.
The bilateral summit was scheduled for Monday, the first day of the two-day ASEAN-Republic of Korea Commemorative Summit. But the Cambodian leader has reportedly given notice of his decision not to attend the ASEAN summit as his mother-in-law was in a critical health condition.
