It’s a Family Affair as Paetongtarn Shinawatra Visits Cambodia

The return of the Shinawatra clan in Thailand has delivered a fillip to relations between Bangkok and Phnom Penh.

Paetongtarn Shinawatra, the leader of Thailand’s ruling Pheu Thai Party, yesterday paid a one-day visit to Cambodia aimed at strengthening its relationship with its counterpart in Phnom Penh – a sign of a growing momentum in the two nations’ bilateral relations.


During the visit, she held meetings with senior officials including Prime Minister Hun Manet and his father, Hun Sen, the president of the ruling Cambodian People’s Party (CPP). In a post on social media, the Pheu Thai Party described the visit as a party-to-party diplomacy with the Cambodian People’s Party.

“This visit to Cambodia was a meeting at the political party level, which aimed to strengthen the relationship between the Pheu Thai Party and the CPP,” the party said, according to the Phnom Penh Post.
