South Korean President Moon Jae-in arrived in Cambodia on Thursday on a three-day state visit aimed at improving the countries’ bilateral ties, as well as his country’s relations with the Association of Southeast Asian Nations.

Moon is currently on a trip to three ASEAN countries that earlier took him to Brunei and Malaysia.

His trip to Phnom Penh marks the first of its kind in 10 years by a South Korean president.

Moon and Prime Minister Hun Sen will hold a summit Friday to discuss ways to further expand the countries’ cooperation.

The South Korean president is also scheduled to call on King Norodom Sihamoni.

During his stay, Moon will also visit Angkor Wat, one of the world’s oldest religious monuments.

His trip to the ancient Buddhist temple comes at a request from Cambodia, according to his office Cheong Wa Dae.

“Because Angkor Wat is a symbol of Cambodia’s glorious ancient civilization and pride of Cambodians, (the president) agreed to accept the invitation to show his appreciation and respect,” Cheong Wa Dae spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom told reporters earlier.

Moon and the Cambodian leader were originally set to hold their first meeting Friday, but the two have agreed to hold a social dinner later in the day, the spokesman said.

The dinner, which will also be attended by the leaders’ wives, was proposed by Prime Minister Hun Sen, he added.

His visit to Cambodia will end Saturday when he will head home, also wrapping up his weeklong tour that began Sunday. (Yonhap)
