PHNOM PENH, Cambodia (AP) - President Barack Obama is in Cambodia on the final leg of his three-country tour of Southeast Asia.

The trip marks the first time a U.S. president has visited Cambodia, which is hosting the East Asia Summit.

Obama was scheduled to meet Monday evening with Cambodia's longtime Prime Minister Hun Sen. The White House says Obama will raise U.S. concerns about Cambodia's human rights record during the meeting.

The president also will attend a dinner with regional leaders in Cambodia for the summit.

1. he is really something special.... really

"When I took office as president, I sent a message to those governments who ruled by fear: We will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your first," Obama said. "... So today, I have come to keep my promise, and extend the hand of friendship."
