Cambodian PM meets Ukraine foreign minister ahead of Asia summit including Russia

Cambodia’s leader met Ukraine’s foreign minister on Wednesday in Phnom Penh, with Prime Minister Hun Sen saying his country “opposes aggression” days ahead of a regional summit that Russia’s foreign minister is due to attend.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba is due to sign a Treaty of Amity and Cooperation with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), a senior Cambodian official said, as Kyiv seeks to strengthen ties with the bloc, which joined international condemnation of Russia’s invasion.

In a statement on his Facebook page, Hun Sen said Cambodia “opposes aggression, threats or the use of violence against the sovereignty and territorial integrity of independent states”.
