South Korea and Cambodia agreed to elevate their relations to a strategic partnership during a bilateral summit in Seoul on Thursday.

The official luncheon held after the Korea-Cambodia summit and it was also attended by the first ladies of the two countries. Back in 2022, Korea first lady Kim Keon-hee helped a Cambodian boy receive heart surgery in Korea.

Analysts say it is likely she decided to resume her public appearances at this juncture because several important diplomatic events are scheduled to take place soon, including trilateral talks with China and Japan as well as a summit with Africa.
