The Prime Minister has insisted his health is fine, despite being hospitalised in Singapore for what he called “urgent medical treatment”.
Mr Hun Sen, 64, was admitted to the hospital on Wednesday and cancelled all official duties until Sunday, when he is due to return home.
He said he had fallen ill and his doctors suggested he go to Singapore for tests.
“I would like to ask for understanding from the officials and armed forces in Kampong Speu province,” he said. “I hoped to see you this morning but it had to be cancelled.
“I would also like to ask for understanding from my friends from Japan, Indian and France for having to cancel our meetings. I fell sick because I am so tired and I needed urgent medical tests and treatment.”
The Prime Minister posted a on Facebook a statement accompanied by four photos of members of his family at his bedside.
His first scheduled appointment after his return home is to attend a ceremony to mark World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day in Phnom Penh on Monday.
Mr Hun Sen was also briefly hospitalised in Singapore last year.
