On July 11, Prime Minister Hun Sen visited the Japanese embassy in Phnom Penh to pay his condolences to the late Shinzo Abe.

On July 8 in the early morning, Abe was fatally shot while speaking at a political rally in the western Japanese city of Nara.

Hun Sen sent his sincere condolences to his family, the Japanese government, and the Japanese people, stating that this was a tragic loss and an unbearable pain.

He wrote in the official condolence book, “Shinzo Abe’s passing resulted in the loss of a patriotic leader who directed Japan’s development and enhanced its influence on global and regional stages, as well as a true friend of the Cambodian people and of myself.”

“Since 2013, he has pushed for assistance to promote Cambodia’s development and helped boost bilateral relations between Cambodia and Japan into a strategic alliance,” Prime Minister added.

According to Hun Sen’s statement, the Cambodian people would never forget Abe’s generous efforts and sincere sentiments.

May Shinzo Abe’s soul rest in peace in view of these heartbreaking circumstances, he wrote in his statement.

Members of the NA Standing Committee were led by Cheam Yeab, the NA’s first vice-president, paid their final respects to Abe at the embassy.

Abe had generously helped Cambodia throughout his tenure, as well as several ASEAN countries.
