Cambodian PM in quarantine after contact with Covid-19 case, cancels meeting with UK foreign secretary

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said on Saturday he has cancelled talks next week with British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab after the South-east Asian leader came into contact with someone infected with coronavirus.

Mr Hun Sen wrote in a Facebook post that he had indirect contact with a Covid-19 patient and doctors required he be tested and undergo quarantine for 14 days until July 3.

“I apologise that I have to cancel all scheduled meetings… I beg for understanding from the UK Foreign Secretary,” he said, adding that the pair had been scheduled to meet on Wednesday morning.
