WASHINGTON DC - US President Barack Obama says he wants to continue to strengthen ties with Cambodia over his next four years in office, as the president prepares to be sworn in Jan. 20 for a second term in office.

“I look forward to continuing and strengthening the relationship between our two countries over the next four years,” Obama said in a courtesy letter to Prime Minister Hun Sen.
