Cambodia will not have time to discuss with Thailand on the deteriorating ties when their leaders meet in the US-Asean Summit in Singapore this weekend, Cambodia’s PM Hun Sen said Wednesday.
Hun Sen was speaking after his government rejected a Thai request to extradite fugitive Thaksin Shinawatra. Thai diplomats submitted the request together with supplementary documents to Cambodian foreign ministry only to be handed back right away.
“Perhaps we will not have time. We go to Singapore to participate in the US-Asean summit. We have only 1:30 hours for the summit,” said Hun Sen in an interview. Thaksin was also present in the interview which was broadcast in the Cambodian National TV.
