Top Chinese diplomat says Beijing firmly supports Cambodia to safeguard national interests and national dignity and a greater role on world and regional stages.

China is willing to work with Cambodia’s new government to build close and high-quality ties, Foreign Minister Wang Yi said in a meeting with the country’s next leader, Hun Manet on Sunday.

“An international observer mission with representatives from over 60 countries unanimously agreed that the election was fair, transparent and in accordance with the law, and the results of the election reflected the shared aspirations of the people,” Wang said in talks with incoming prime minister Hun Manet and outgoing leader Hun Sen in Phnom Penh.
