Cambodia continues to earn praise for its humanitarian act of allowing the MS Westerdam cruise ship with more than 2,200 passengers and crew on board to dock at the Preah Sihanouk port. The praise this time comes from none other than US President Donald Trump.
“Thank you to the beautiful country of Cambodia for accepting the @CarnivalCruise ship Westerdam into your port. The US will remember your courtesy!” Trump tweeted on Saturday.
And in its tweet on Friday, the UN World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) said: “The MS Westerdam has docked in Cambodia with [more than] 2,000 tourists and crew on board. Once again, tourism has shown its unique ability to bring people together at times of adversity, celebrating our common humanity regardless of race, gender or creed.”
