US and Asean countries to hold virtual meeting of foreign ministers in Cambodia

The United States and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations will hold a foreign ministers’ meeting virtually on Wednesday, the Cambodian government said in a statement on Monday.

The video conference will be the first such high-level meeting between the two sides under the administration of US President Joe Biden.

It was originally expected to be held in late May but was postponed at the last minute because US Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who was heading to the Middle East, could not participate due to a communication failure on the plane.
