President Lee Myung-bak will visit Cambodia next week for a series of regional summits with the newly mandated U.S. president, Barack Obama, and other leaders about freer trade and other cooperation in the region, his office announced Thursday.
The three-day visit to Phnom Penh starting Sunday is part of Lee’s two-nation trip that will also take him to the United Arab Emirates for talks expected to focus on increasing atomic power and other energy cooperation between the two countries.
In Phnom Penh, Lee will attend a trio of annual meetings: a summit with the 10 member nations of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN); a meeting between ASEAN and South Korea, China and Japan; and a meeting of the East Asia Summit (EAS) forum.
