Phnom Penh (FN), Oct. 6 – Cambodia strongly condemned the North Korea’s launch of ballistic missile over Japan and considered such action a threat to regional security.

The premier spoke at the opening of Cambodia Outlook Conference 2022 under a theme “Revitalising Cambodia: Sustaining Development after COVID19”, held on Thursday (Oct 6) in Phnom Penh.
