The world is watching as Cambodia navigates the complex web of international affairs. In an era marked by trust deficit, fast-evolving global power shift and transforming geopolitical and geo-economic landscapes, Cambodia finds itself compelled to take an active and forward-looking stance in its foreign affairs—an approach that seeks friendship with all nations while harboring no adversaries.
The Asia Pacific region is at an inflection point- facing an arc of geopolitical instability. Regional security flashpoints such as the tensions on the Korean Peninsula, Taiwan Straits, East and South China Seas, and Myanmar crisis continue to threaten regional peace and stability. Against this backdrop, Cambodia must be prepared to face different scenarios, while taking a leadership role in international crisis prevention and management by prioritizing diplomacy, dialogue and international law.
