Cambodia has asked Japan to support the general election in July, including financial aid and sending observers, according to a post on Prime Minister Hun Sen’s Facebook page.
The move was made after Prime Minister Hun Sen met with Japan’s State Minister of Foreign Affairs Nakane Kazuyuki at the Peace Palace in Phnom Penh.
During the meeting, Mr Hun Sen asked the Japanese side to continue supporting Cambodia with aid for the national election that will be held on July 29, 2018, and to send observers to monitor the election as well.
Meanwhile, Foreign Minister Prak Sokhonn also met with Mr Kazuyuki at the ministry, where both officials discussed the defence sector, trade, tourism, assistance aid and relations between the two countries, as well as a host of regional issues.
