( – Mr Samak Sundaravej told viewers of his weekly television programme this morning about his first visit to Cambodia as Thailand’s prime minister. He said he was surprised and flattered by the amount of locals who came to greet him at Phnom Penh international airport.

He compared the country, which has a population of 14 million, to how it was 50 years ago and said that it had developed a great deal with major roads leading to the capital now.

Mr Samak also revealed how he was granted an audience with His Majesty the King Norodom Sihamoni.

“From talks with His Majesty, he expressed a wish for MK Suki to set up business there,” the premier said.
