King Norodom Sihamoni (pic) is due to pay a three-day state visit to India from May 29-31, as the two nations commemorate their 70th anniversary of diplomatic relations.
In a press release, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said the King will hold royal audiences with Indian President Droupadi Murmu and Prime Minister Narendra Modi, during which bilateral and multilateral cooperation will be discussed.
“The King will also grant separate royal audiences to Indian Vice-President Jagdeep Dhankhar and foreign minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar,” it said on Friday.
“The King will lay a wreath at the memorial of Mahatma Gandhi, and President Murmu will host a State Banquet in honour of His Majesty,” it added.
The release said the visit will mark a significant milestone in the two countries’ enduring relations and contribute to further deepening their bonds of friendship and close cooperation, which are deeply rooted in their shared historical, religious and cultural heritage, for the mutual benefit of the two peoples. — The Phnom Penh Post/ANN
