PHNOM PENH — Cambodia and Nepal are discussing joint steps to promote direct flights between the countries and to open the embassies in their capitals in order to strengthen bilateral cooperation, a government spokesperson said.

Nepal’s Prime Minister K. P. Sharma Oli is on an official three-day visit to Cambodia this week and held bilateral talks with Prime Minister Hun Sen.

Together they also addressed a Cambodia-Nepal Business Forum in Phnom Penh, which was attended by businesses representatives from the two countries, and they urged greater trade and investment between their nations.

Council of Ministers spokesperson Phay Siphan said the meetings had resulted in a commitment to try to establish direct flights between the countries and to open embassies, though he could not confirm when either of the plans would be implemented.

“Diplomatic work is good communication and international cooperation. And in principle, Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen has been integrating with the region as well as other countries around the world,” he said, using the premier’s full honorific titles.
