Hopes of a Political Compromise are Kindled as Kem Sokha and Hun Sen Meet

Opposition leader Kem Sokha had a rare meeting with Prime Minister Hun Sen on Tuesday at the funeral ceremony of the latter, marking the first time the two have met since for opposition leader’s arrest in 2017.

First Lady Bun Rany’s mother, Bun Seang Ly, passed away at 96 years old on May 4 and former Cambodia National Rescue Party President Kem Sokha paid the first family a condolence visit, and spent an additional 50 minutes speaking to the prime minister.

The exchange caused a lot of conversation on Twitter and Facebook about a potential reconciliation between the two leaders, even as Hun Sen’s government pushes ahead with treason charges against Kem Sokha.
