Cambodia names new ambassador to Philippines

Published: 18-Dec-12

PHNOM PENH (The Cambodia Herald) - The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has appointed a former undersecretary of state as Cambodia's new ambassador to the Philippines.

Spokesman Kuy Kuong said Tuesday that Tuot Panha would meet with King Norodom Sihamoni and National Assembly President Heng Samrin before leaving for Manila.

"Diplomatic cooperation between the two countries is good as usual and there is no problem in changing the ambassador," he said.

Tout Phanha succeeds Ambassador Hor Sereython, who accused the Philippines of playing "dirty politics" after the annual meeting of ASEAN foreign ministers failed to issue its customary joint statement in July.

The Philippines and Vietnam had wanted the statement to include mention of territorial disputes in the South China Sea. Fellow ASEAN members Brunei and Malaysia also have disputes in the sea, which is mostly claimed by China.
