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.

Obama's Asia tour, his first foreign trip following his re-election, also included stops in Thailand and Myanmar.
