But the US Embassy spokesman Jeff Daigle said that the delegation visits Angkor Vath, and they meet with Deputy Prime Minister Sok An with 12 Cambodian delegation members to greet the senators and the discussion focused on trading, counter terrorism, health cooperation, and human rights.

If Cambodia will be the recipient of the new US trade law, she can export garments duty free.
