Cambodia's king returns from state visit to China

Kyodo _ Cambodia's King Norodom Sihamoni arrived in Phnom Penh on Tuesday after an almost two-week visit to China.

The 52-year-old monarch paid a state visit to Beijing on Aug. 12-14 and extended the stay until Tuesday because his father, retired King Norodom Sihanouk, is undergoing medical treatment there.

A senior palace official said the king met with Chinese President Hu Jintao, and other Chinese leaders during the visit, his first official overseas trip since ascending the throne last year following his father's abdication.
