Cambodian PM says U.S. cancels summit with ASEAN leaders

Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen said on Monday that the United States has cancelled the ASEAN-U.S. summit, which was previously scheduled on March 14 in Las Vegas.

Speaking at a university graduation ceremony here, Hun Sen said combating the COVID-19 was perhaps the main reason that U.S. President Donald Trump decided to postpone the summit.

“I support President Trump’s decision taking this time, because both the U.S. and ASEAN are busy alike, to control the situation relating to this virus,” he said.
