Prime Minister Anthony Albanese arrives in Cambodia ahead of ASEAN and East Asia Summits

Prime Minister Anthony Albanese has touched down in Phnom Penh, ahead of crucial talks with South-East Asian leaders likely to be dominated by China’s aggression in the region and the effects of the war in Ukraine.

The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) and East Asia Summits coincide with the 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Australia and Cambodia, as Canberra seeks to build stronger ties with some of its closest neighbours.

It is the first stop in a three summit tour of the region, with Mr Albanese attending the G20 and APEC leaders meetings in Indonesia and Thailand next week.
