Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen on Tuesday hailed China for its non-biased foreign policy toward developing countries, saying such policy will make China get more friends among developing nations.
"All developing countries in the world want 'equal status, equal rights', and China has honored this point, so I believe that China will have more friends in the world because there are a lot of developing countries," the premier said during a groundbreaking ceremony for the construction of a China-funded road in eastern Kampong Cham province.
"Cambodia and other developing countries are pleased with China's foreign policy that gives value to the opinions of developing countries. We are poor, small, developing countries, but China honors us and treats us equal status, equal rights," he said.
The premier said that China is the only developing country among the permanent members of the United Nations Security Council, and China has provided the importance for the weak voice of developing countries.
In regard to the on-going first session of the 12th National People's Congress (NPC) in Beijing, and there will be votes to elect new Chinese President, Premier, and other leaders, Hun Sen said, "I firmly believe that the new Chinese leadership will be no any change in foreign politics toward Cambodia."
He unveiled that he will make an official visit to Beijing on April 8 in order to meet upcoming new Chinese leaders.
