Cambodia will re-open its embassy in Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia, in 2019.

Prime Minister Hun Sen and Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borissov met in New York on Friday, Sept. 28, on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly.  On that occasion Hun Sen told his counterpart about the planned re-opening of the embassy that was temporarily closed due to the tenuous political situation in Bulgaria at the time.

Mr Borissov welcomed the re-opening of the Kingdom’s embassy in his country and told Hun Sen that it is an opportunity for him to pay an official visit to Bulgaria.

Both countries pledged to to enhance cooperation and strengthen their relationship in economic, commercial, and touristic matters.

Toward the end of the meeting Hun Sen informed his Bulgarian counterpart that Cambodia aims to host the Asia-Europe Meeting in 2020, an intent that all ASEAN member states and some EU nations support.

Mr Borissov viewed this favourably and said he supported Cambodia’s in its bid to host that meeting.
