NEW DELHI: India and Cambodia got into a bit of a diplomatic tangle on Monday, with Cambodian PM Samdech Hun Sen cutting short his visit in the wake of state mourning declared here due to former PM Chandra Shekhar's death.

Though the external affairs ministry tried to downplay the episode, sources said the Cambodian delegation was slightly miffed about the communication gap and differing perceptions about protocol to be extended to its PM.

Hun Sen and his delegation, which included deputy PM and foreign minister Hor Namhong, had arrived on Sunday on a four-day state visit.
