Phnom Penh (FN), Aug. 30 – Cambodian interior minister Sar Kheng's son, Sar Sokha, secretary of state at the ministry of education, youth and sports, confirmed Monday that his father's trip to France is purely for health check-up.

"My father’s trip to France is for health check-up. He will not meet any politician as accused by some analysts and politicians of the court-dissolved CNRP," Sar Sokha wrote on his Facebook.

His statement was made after a Facebook account named Tharith Bun posted an old photo of the meeting between minister Sar Kheng and Sam Rainsy in the National Assembly in September 2015 and republished it with distorted content.

Minister Sar Kheng is currently on a two-week personal trip to France, from 22 August to 5 September 2021, while Sam Rainsy is currently in the United States.
