Phnom Penh (FN), Nov. 18 – Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said that if Cambodian people do not want to work overseas, the government can just end the agreement on sending workers abroad, speaking in a graduation ceremony on Monday.

The premier claimed that he would not end the agreement, as it affects people's incomes.

The Royal Government of Cambodia has put much efforts to sign an agreement to legally send Cambodians work to other countries such as South Korea and Japan with the sake to promote their incomes and living standard; yet the destructive opposition groups criticized the government for sending people to serve others.

"The government, under my leadership, has tried so hard to find job markets for our Cambodian people, but was criticized by the opposition [...] the government can revoke the agreement in sending workers abroad, yet doing so would affect workers themselves," he said.

Prime Minister informed that during his visit to South Korea on 24 November 2019, he will discuss worker issues in details while meeting with Cambodian workers there, and he will also hold a 45-minute talk with South Korean President Moon Jae-In.
