Phnom Penh (FN), Oct. 4 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen urged all member countries of the Olympic Council of Asia (OCA) to offer assistances to much as possible for the kingdom to successfully host SEA Games and ASEAN Para Games 2023.

The premier spoke at the 41st General Assembly of the Olympic Council of Asia, held on Tuesday (Oct 4) at Sokha Phnom Penh Hotel & Residence.

“Cambodia was one of the founders of the South-East Asian Peninsular (SEAP) Games Federation, the forerunner to the current regional sports body, and the Kingdom was to host the Games in 1963 before they were cancelled due to the political situation at the time,” said ASEAN Para Sports Federation.

“With the Kingdom now enjoying stability and rapid development, “Sport: Live In Peace” was chosen as the slogan for the 2023 Cambodia Games to highlight how peace has been crucial for the Kingdom’s remarkable transformation,” the federation added.
