KUALA LUMPUR: King Norodom Sihamoni of Cambodia granted Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim an audience at the Royal Palace of Cambodia as part of the prime minister’s inaugural official visit to the country on Monday (March 27).

The Malaysian Prime Minister, in a Facebook post, said that during his audience with the King, he had delivered the Malaysian government’s intent to continue to strengthen bilateral relations between the two countries that began 66 years ago.

Anwar also paid a courtesy call on Cambodian Senate president Say Chhum and the National Assembly president Heng Samrin, during which they managed to exchange views.

"Even with a busy schedule, I managed to meet up with the Malaysian diaspora at an event at the Malaysian embassy in Phnom Penh and was able to present the government’s intention that togetherness and unity would be expected even while abroad,” he said.

Anwar arrived in Cambodia on Monday for a one-day official visit to strengthen bilateral relations and cooperation established in 1957.
