Cambodia to host 13th ASEM Summit in Nov

Phnom Penh, July 13 (TIWN) Cambodia will host the 13th Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit on November 25 and 26 via videoconference, the Foreign Ministry announced on Tuesday.

Cambodia will host the summit virtually given that the Covid-19 pandemic still prevails and emerging variants trigger new waves in many parts of the world, including Cambodia, said Foreign Ministry's secretary of state Luy David, who is the ASEM Senior Officials' Meeting (SOM) leader for the country.  "The decision has been made based on the recommendation of the National Committee for Combatting Covif-19 that a physical summit is neither safe for ASEM leaders to attend nor practical as the virus continues to rage on while travel restrictions are being re-imposed by many countries," Xinhua news agency quoted the ministry as saying.
