Adding that, under his presidency, he expects the U.S. to contribute to greater stability in the world

PHNOM PENH--Prime Minister Hun Sen on Dec. 15 sent a letter to Joe Biden, soon to become the 46th president of the United States, congratulating him for winning the US presidential election in November.

“I wish you, Mr. President-elect, and your administration, all the best of success in the fulfillment of your historic duty at the helm of the American Nation,” he wrote.

In his message, Hun Sen said that Biden's vast experience and wise leadership have proven to be the determining factor in earning the trust of the American people. “I firmly believe that, under your presidency, the United States of America will thrive and contribute to greater stability and prosperity of the world,” he said.

“The people and the government of Cambodia have always attached great importance to strengthening and deepening the long-standing bond of friendship between the two countries, which we are in the midst of commemorating its 70th Anniversary this year,” the prime minister wrote, referring to the 70th anniversary of Cambodia and the US establishing diplomatic relations in 1950, which has been marked by several events this year.  

“Please rest assured that my government is fully committed to working with your administration to boost our bilateral relationship to a greater height,” Hun Sen said.

Biden, who defeated incumbent President Donald Trump in the presidential election, will be inaugurated as the 46th president of the United States on Jan. 20, 2021. He served as US President Barack Obama's vice president from 2009 to 2017.
