Hun Sen in quarantine, cancels talks with Raab


Prime Minister Hun Sen had cancelled talks next week with British Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab after he came into contact with someone infected with the coronavirus.

Hun Sen wrote in a Facebook post that he had indirect contact with a Covid-19 patient and doctors required he be tested and undergo quarantine for 14 days until July 3.

“I apologise that I have to cancel all scheduled meetings.

“I beg for understanding from the UK Foreign Secretary,” he said, adding that the pair had been scheduled to meet on Wednesday morning.

Raab was expected to visit Phnom Penh early next week, according to Cambodian officials.

Hun Sen’s quarantine comes as the country reported 20 deaths from the virus on Saturday, the highest number in a single day since the pandemic began. — AFP
