Cambodian prime minister Hun Sen is not able to attend the opening ceremony of Asean summit because he has to welcome the president of South Korea who is scheduled to pay an official visit to Cambodia on Friday, secretary-general of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean), Surin Pitsuwan, said on Thursday afternoon.
“But Mr Hun Sen will certainly attend the Asean summit late in the afternoon on Friday as scheduled,” Mr Surin said.
Hun Sen's ,failure to atend the opening session of the Asean summit does not mean there was conflict between Thailand and Cambodia.
