Cambodia was one of the first countries to recognise Singapore’s independence on 10 August 1965, via a telegram from then-Prince Norodom Sihanouk to then-Prime Minister Lee Kuan Yew. Formal diplomatic relations were established on 15 September 1965. Dr Ernest Steven Monteiro was appointed Singapore’s first Ambassador to Cambodia and took up post in 1966. The Embassy was closed in 1973 but reopened in 1995, following Mr Mushahid Ali’s appointment as Ambassador.
