Cambodia–Poland relations is the official relations between the Kingdom of Cambodia and Republic of Poland. Both two countries used to have respective embassies in their own countries, but had since then closed from 2010s.

History and modern relations[edit]

During 17th century, Wojciech Męciński, a Polish Catholic Jesuit, made his trip to Cambodia in a part his travel across Asia. There, he had recorded carefully and closely over various Asian nations: Japan, Cambodia, Vietnam, China, Siam.[1] His record of Cambodia was the first ever Polish record over the country.[2] However, it was not until early 20th century, that saw Poland and Cambodia finally established relations. Two countries established relations in 1956, but the remoteness of Cambodia meant nothing much developed.

During the Khmer Rouge's rule, Poland was among one of the few countries to condemn the Khmer Rouge. At 1990s, Poland was part of United Nations Transitional Authority in Cambodia, which contributed greatly on the stabilization of Cambodia after the traumatic Cambodian–Vietnamese War and the Khmer Rouge's Cambodian genocide; which is made to documentary in 2018.[3] Subsequently, a Polish school was established in the same year as a tribute to Polish mission.[4]

Poland and Cambodia both established their respective embassies in its capitals in 2005 and 2007, but both also closed due to financial reasons.
