Cambodia PM’s son, heir apparent to visit Japan in mid-Feb.

Hun Manet, the eldest son of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen and commander of the country’s army, plans to visit Japan in mid-February for talks with Prime Minister Fumio Kishida and other top officials, Japanese government sources said Sunday.

Japan intends to step up coordination with Cambodia, this year’s chair of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations, over the Myanmar crisis and regional security through the visit of a man Hun Sen has appointed as his heir apparent, the sources said.

Hun Manet is expected to hold separate talks with Kishida, Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi and Defense Minister Nobuo Kishi, as well as Ground Self-Defense Force troops to discuss ways to deepen bilateral defense cooperation, among other issues.
