US ambassador meets King as he looks to strengthen ties

Recommended Posts

The government’s spokespersons unit is optimistic that newly-appointed United States Ambassador Patrick Murphy can help bridge diplomatic gaps after he met with King Norodom Sihamoni on Saturday and issued a positive statement.

 

Mr Murphy arrived in Phnom Penh last month, but only presented his credentials to King Sihamoni on Saturday at the Royal Palace. Shortly after, Mr Murphy posted a message on his Twitter page, which the government has taken as a positive sign. Mr Murphy tweeted that he hopes he can strengthen US-Cambodia relations.

 

“After presenting credentials to King Norodom Sihamoni, I will look forward to meeting with members of the Royal Government of Cambodia and discuss efforts to strengthen ties between our two great countries,” he said on Twitter. Government spokesman Phay Siphan yesterday lauded Mr Murphy’s attitude.

I don't decide the schedules or set priorities for any of the aforementioned. I wish them well.

Sihamoni is an empty figurehead (more so than his father). Everything goes through Hun Sen and his band of criminals. Hun Sen has thrown his lot with China and with Europe rapidly abandoning him, that relationship will only get more tight. Sadly the ship has sailed on Cambodia until Hun Sen and family are ousted.
