The ASEAN-U.S. Special Summit, scheduled to be held in Washington D.C. on May 12-13, 2022, will boost the cooperation between both sides.

The remarks were made by Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Cambodia and Chair of ASEAN for 2022, in his message dated April 28 while accepting the invitation of H.E. Joseph R. Biden, Jr., President of the United States of America, to attend the Special Summit.

“As the ASEAN Chair for 2022, I wish to reiterate Cambodia’s strong desire to explore more opportunities to expand the ASEAN-U.S. cooperation on all fronts,” he wrote. “I am also confident that the Special Summit will serve as excellent opportunity for us to discuss on further enhancing our cooperation and exchange views on issues of common concern and interest to both ASEAN and the United States.”

“I believe that the reaffirmation of your commitment to further strengthen the relations between the United States and ASEAN, as we commemorate the 45th Anniversary of ASEAN-U.S. Dialogue Relations, will be a stepping stone toward elevating our partnerships to a new height,” Samdech Techo Hun Sen added.

In this connection, he underlined, Cambodia is strongly supportive of elevating the ASEAN-U.S. relations to Comprehensive Strategic Partnership.
