PHNOM PENH, April 26 (Xinhua) -- Myanmar's State Counselor Aung San Suu Kyi will pay an official visit to Cambodia from April 29 to May 1, said a Cambodian foreign ministry's statement on Friday.

It will be Aung San Suu Kyi's first visit to Cambodia since she took office in 2016.

During her trip, Aung San Suu Kyi will have separate audiences with Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni and Queen-Mother Norodom Monineath Sihanouk at the royal palace, the statement said.

She will also hold bilateral talks with Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen after paying subsequent courtesy calls on Senate President Samdech Say Chhum and National Assembly President Samdech Heng Samrin, it said.

Aung San Suu Kyi's visit "will further strengthen and expand the bilateral bond of friendship and cooperation in all areas as well as within the ASEAN (Association of Southeast Asian Nations) and multilateral framework," the statement said.

At the conclusion of the trip, she will visit the Angkor Archeological Park, a world heritage site, in northwestern Cambodia's Siem Reap province, the statement added.

Myanmar and Cambodia established diplomatic relations in 1955.
