Phnom Penh (FN), Sep. 14 – Samdech Techo Hun Sen, president of the Supreme Privy Council of the King and president of the ruling party, said that he was observing the activities of the new prime minister, both inside and outside the country, and praised that Hun Manet performed better than expected.

Samdech Techo wrote on his Tik Tok account attached with a video of Cambodian prime minister, Samdech Thipadei Hun Manet’s official visit to China.

“One must jump into the water to learn how to swim. I am observing the activities of the new prime minister, both in the country and abroad.

Having held the position of prime minister for more than 38 years, I can say that prime minister Hun Manet performed better than expected.

I am not speaking to praise my son. Before, I thought it would take about three months for the new prime minister to take full control of the work. Contrary to my thought, this prime minister has stated his journey with confidence, taking full control of works in all areas, both small and big tasks in the country and foreign affairs as reflected through ASEAN Summit and related meetings and the first official visit to the People's Republic of China today; and prepares to attend the United Nations General Assembly next week. The child of the dragon will definitely not become a baby frog.”

Samdech Thipadei Hun Manet and a high-level delegation are paying an official visit to China from 14-16 September 2023, at the invitation of Chinese premier Li Qiang.
