Cambodian dictator pleased with US promise not to overthrow him

Cambodia’s authoritarian leader Hun Sen has offered to renew friendship with the United States after receiving a letter from President Donald Trump, a turnaround in relations with the country he once accused of conspiring to overthrow him.

A letter dated November 26 from Hun Sen to Trump thanked him for assurances that Washington was not seeking “regime change” in Cambodia.

Both countries foreign affairs teams should now work “to restore trust and confidence, and renew the bond of friendship between our two countries and peoples”, he added in the letter seen by Reuters.
