Government to open embassies in Ankara, Sofia

The Cambodian government will open an embassy in the Republic of Turkey next year, a statement issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said on Friday.

In a move to bolster cooperation and partnership between the two countries, Foreign Affairs Minister Prak Sokhonn is scheduled to visit Turkey from October 1-3, during which his delegation would also discuss the new embassy plan.

“The minister will discuss various issues of common interests and concerns in bilateral contexts as well as efforts to further strengthen political trust and explore new potentials to advance mutual benefits of the two countries.”

Furthermore, they will witness the signing ceremony of a Memorandum of Understanding on cooperation between Cambodia’s National Institute of Diplomacy and Turkey’s Diplomacy Academy.

Meanwhile, the Cambodian embassy in Bulgaria will be reopened next year as well, after it had been temporarily closed due to the tenuous political situation in that country.

The announcement came after Hun Sen met with Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov on Friday, on the sidelines of the UN General Embassy.
