According to Paetongtarn, the two-day visit will focus on cooperation between Pheu Thai and the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP).

Hun Sen, president of the CPP, extended the invitation to Paetongtarn to visit Cambodia during his recent home visit to her father, Thaksin Shinawatra, who was recently released on parole.
