Phnom Penh: The Malaysian Embassy in Cambodia has issued a statement stating that it does not condone any words or actions that offend or offend others, as those actions are not Malaysian views. This is the response of the Embassy to the Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia, which issued a statement to Mr. NIGEL NG (Uncle Roger) to apologize to the Cambodian people because the Malaysian used bad words comparing Khmer and Lao food saying it is bad food to Thai food.

According to the statement, the Malaysian Embassy emphasized that Cambodia and Malaysia have maintained good cooperation in both international and regional forums, which is a very important link in upholding ASEAN principles. The embassy added that this is the essence of its commitment to maintaining harmonious relations with its foreign counterparts. Therefore, the Embassy considers Nigel Ng's actions to be a hindrance and a breach of trust and friendship between Cambodia and Malaysia, as well as the people of both countries.

Please be informed that on July 30, 2023, Uncle Roger, the famous producer of Youtube content, posted a video clip using insulting words to taste Khmer food while Cambodia is trying to bring Khmer food to the world. Also, the Malaysian also said to despise Lao food.
