Takeo (FN), Mar. 2 – Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen said that being a chairman of ASEAN Summit 2022 is not a simple role as various ongoing issues are needed to be solved, speaking in an inauguration ceremony for the official use of National Road No. 3 in Takeo province on Wednesday.

“One problem has yet solved, another happens. Currently, we are trying to push the COC between ASEAN and China to move forward. While the Myanmar’s crisis is still ongoing, the Russia-Ukraine war starts,” the premier underlined.

Samdech added that even though Russia-Ukraine war is far from ASEAN region, it also requires the ASEAN actions.

This year, Cambodia serves as a rotating chair of ASEAN Summit 2022 under the theme “ASEAN A.C.T.: Addressing Challenges Together”.

Cambodia commits to coordinate in resolving the Myanmar crisis, the South China Sea dispute, and other issues.
