Beginning his one-day state visit, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen on Saturday offered floral tributes to father of the nation Mahatma Gandhi at his memorial at Rajghat.
Hun Sen arrived here on Wednesday to attend the Commemorative Summit hosted by India on Thursday to mark 25 years of the India-Asean Dialogue Partnership and was given a ceremonial reception at the Rashtrapati Bhawan.
External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj called on Hun Sen in the morning and he will be holding delegation-level talks with Prime Minister Narendra Modi later in the day.
Hun Sen will also call on President Ram Nath Kovind and Vice President Venkaiah Naidu.
The Cambodian leader was among the 10 Association of Southeast Asian Nations (Asean) Heads of State or government who attended Friday’s Republic Day celebrations here as guests of honour, a first in the history of independent India.
The Asean comprises Brunei, Cambodia, Indonesia, Laos, Malaysia, Myanmar, the Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, and Vietnam.
India is a major developmental aid partner for Cambodia and has so far extended lines of credit totalling $65.20 million to the Southeast Asian nation for water development and transmission line projects.
India-Cambodia trade basket is small and stood at a little over $153 million in 2016, according to figures provided by the External Affairs Ministry.
Hun Sen last visited India in 2012 to participate in the Commemorative Summit to mark the 20th anniversary of the India-Asean Dialogue Partnership, during the course of which he held a bilateral summit with then Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.
