Cambodia puts Ukraine on ASEAN’s agenda

Biden to attend regional summits in Phnom Penh, Putin yet to confirm.

United States President Joe Biden has confirmed he will attend the ASEAN and East Asian summits to be held in Phnom Penh in mid-November, where Prime Minister Hun Sen says he is prepared to mediate talks with Russia over the invasion of Ukraine.

However, Russian President Vladimir Putin has yet to confirm whether he will attend the summits, which will also serve as a prelude to the Group of 20 (G20) meeting in Bali and the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit in Bangkok.

Ministry of Foreign Affairs spokesman, Chum Sounry, has said that as chair of ASEAN, Hun Sen will shortly hold phone talks with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelenskyy after extending an invitation to Putin to attend the upcoming summits.
