Cambodia’s Hun Sen Thanks US President Trump For His ‘Understanding, Patience’

Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen thanked U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday for his “understanding and patience” in not seeking regime change in the autocratic Southeast Asian nation, saying Cambodia needs stability in the country in order to develop.

“As [we are] a very young democracy you probably can appreciate our struggle to find full peace, a condition sine qua non before we can rebuild our nation,” Hun Sen said.

“I appreciate your understanding and patience in that respect and I look forward to have our foreign affairs team work with yours to restore trust and confidence, and renew the bond of friendship between our two countries,” Hun Sen wrote.
