Prime Minister Hun Manet will lead a delegation to China from September 14-16 to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping, China’s Congressional Chairman Zhao Liji and Chinese PM Li Qiang. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that the leaders will exchange views on a number of topics, including building a common destiny of Cambodia and China in the new era by further promoting their “diamond cooperation”, strategic direction for Cambodia-China relations, and regional and international events pertaining to common interests.

Prime Minister Hun Manet will hold bilateral talks with PM Li Qiang on cooperation between the two countries and the two prime ministers will also preside over the signing ceremony of a number of cooperation documents.
