Phnom Penh (FN), May 12 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen said the kingdom welcomes and wants to be friend with every country, speaking during a meeting with Cambodians living in the United States and Canada on Thursday (May 12).

According to premier Hun Sen, Cambodia-US relations have now reached the unprecedented level ever in history. He reminded that before 2000, the US did not have a proper land for the embassy. Later, after Cambodia achieved a complete peace, premier Hun Sen provided a prime location for the US to set up its embassy.

Samdech continued that Cambodia-US trade volume reached more than USD 9 billion.

Samdech has made it clear that Cambodia needs economic and trade relations, not foreign troops.
