In reversal, Cambodia’s Hun Sen offers U.S. new ‘bond of friendship’

A letter dated Nov. 26 from Hun Sen to Trump thanked him for assurances that Washington was not seeking “regime change” in Cambodia.

Both countries foreign affairs teams should now work “to restore trust and confidence, and renew the bond of friendship between our two countries and peoples”, he added in the letter seen by Reuters.

The rapprochement comes after Cambodia, one of China’s closest allies in Asia, had threatened to turn its back on both the United States and the European Union (EU) over their criticism of political repression.
