South Korean President Moon Jae-in was set to hold a summit with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen on Friday, following a meeting with King Norodom Sihamoni.

The summit was widely expected to focus on ways to improve South Korea-Cambodia relations as Moon's visit marks the first of its kind by a South Korean leader in 10 years.

Moon arrived here Thursday on a three-day state visit.

His trip was originally set to begin Friday in a welcome ceremony to be hosted by the Cambodian monarch, but he and his wife, Kim Jung-sook, were joined by Hun Sen and his wife on Thursday for a social dinner that came on a last-minute suggestion from the Cambodian leader.

Moon will end his three-day visit here Saturday after taking a trip to Cambodia's Angkor Wat Buddhist temple complex earlier that day.

His departure here will wrap up his weeklong trip that has also taken him to Brunei and Malaysia. (Yonhap)
