Cambodia set to delay Nov. Asia-Europe Meeting summit to spring

Cambodia, host of this year’s Asia-Europe Meeting, is set to delay the political forum’s biennial summit from mid-November to the spring of 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, a diplomatic source said Friday.

The Nov. 16-17 summit in Phnom Penh was going to be the first opportunity for major political leaders to get together after the U.S. presidential election on Nov. 3.

Cambodia’s decision may affect the timing of other regional summits such as the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation forum and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations gathering, both slated for November.
