King Sihamoni leaves for Francophone Conference in Canada

By Soy Sophea

The King of Cambodia, His Majesty Norodom Sihamoni has left His nation to join the 12th summit of Francophone nations. Heads of state from the world’s French speaking nations will join Him in Quebec, Canada.

The King will be absent from his country from the 15th to the 21st of October, according to the King’s message, published October 14 and dated October 11. With the absence of the King, who is the head of state of Cambodia, Senate President Chea Sim is automatically assigned His place as the head of state of Cambodia during His Majesty’s travels.

Cambodia is pleased to number herself among the other Francophone nations, given her history as a former French colony and the cordial links that exist between the two independent nations today.
