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.
