In the course of his state visit to Nepal the Prime Minister made public on Thursday, Nov. 29 that Cambodia will open its embassy in that Himalayan state and he countersigned four agreements.
The inkings were carried out after the Prime Minister’s meeting with Nepalese Prime Minister Khadga Prasad Sharma Oli.
The four documents are: an agreement on exemption visa issuances for diplomatic and government passport holders, a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on political dialogue culture between the two ministries, an Air Service Agreement, and a MoU on cultural cooperation.
“For bilateral cooperation, Samdech [Hun Sen] said that Cambodia will open its embassy in Kathmandu (the capital of Nepal) and Nepal can open its embassy in Phnom Penh,” conveyed Kao Kim Houn, minister attaché to the Prime Minister, to reporters.
In the meeting between Mr Hun Sen and Nepalese Foreign Minister Pradeep Kumar Gyawali, the minister said that Nepal will open its new airport next year, and that would mean having direct flights to Cambodia.
Mr K.P. Oli considers the relationship between the two countries as close and friendly.
