King Norodom Sihamoni and Queen Mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk left Cambodia on Thursday for Beijing for routine medical check-ups.

Chinese doctors have advised the King and Queen Mother to have regular medical check-ups every six months and they will stay in Beijing for three weeks before returning to Cambodia.

Seeing off the King and Queen Mother at Phnom Penh International airport were National Assembly president Heng Samrin, Senate President Say Chhum, Prime Minister Hun Sen and other senior government officials as well as members of the royal families and Chinese ambassador to Cambodia Xiong Bo.

The departure of the King to Beijing comes only days before the votes in the Senate election on Sunday in which the ruling Cambodian People’s Party expects to win a majority.
