23 February 2023 – Samdech Techo Hun Sen presides over the closing of the annual meeting of the Ministry of Interior.
[…] Our memories of the past, dating from 1923 to the present, are 100 years old. What has Christianity gone through in the last 100 years? No different to other religions, Buddhism and Islam, Christianity has also experienced wars, the aftermath of the Pol Pot genocide, and the aftermath of the war. That is the link between the fate of all religions, all nations living in Cambodia with its peace and development. When we suffer, we all suffer. Through this, you can understand that January 7 is not only a revival of human life, but also a revival of all religions, including Christianity [...]
[…] The hard-won peace that we have scored is not just for Buddhism, the state religion or for anyone. We, including Christianity, have all benefited from peace through win-win politics. We must unite to maintain the hard-won peace, and the “thanks for peace” slogan has been echoing throughout the Kingdom of Cambodia. Have you all here, though not as numerous as Buddhism, seen what happened to the Christians in Ukraine? Have you seen the tragedy that befell a country at war, in which Christianity also suffers? For Cambodia, now under the shadow of peace, we are reaping the benefits [...] so use the full potential of peace to ensure our development […]
Samdech Techo Hun Sen,
100th anniversary of the Evangelical Fellowship of Cambodia, 27 January 2023.
(25) To live another 20 years will see the population increase to 20 million ... Under Pol Pot, we had nothing to eat. Polpotists did not allow us to eat. Now, the Doctors recommended us to not eat (certain foods) […] human life is not stable, but I firmly believe that I am to live till I am (over) 90 years old. I will keep watching until the population grow to 20 million (people), from the only 5 million (people) at which point we started. Now our population has reached 17 million. If I live another 20 years, I will see our population increase by about 20 million (people) with other achievements built [...]
(27) Cambodia is incapable of providing military assistance but helping to train deminers for Ukraine [...]Cambodia has no capacity to provide military assistance to Ukraine. As for Cambodia, helping to train Ukrainian deminers is a purely humanitarian task. Cambodia has sent troops to clear mines abroad, contributing to peacekeeping under the United Nations umbrella. We now have troops stationed in four countries - Mali, South Sudan, Lebanon, and Central Africa. In the past, we had been in (countries like) Syria, Chad, Cyprus (in) Europe. How did we get there? There is an area of conflict […] that was under mines. The United Nations sent our troops there to help clear mines. We had sent forces to help clear mines, which are hidden killers in various countries [...]
(28) Cambodia does not send troops and/or deminers trainers to Ukraine [...] We have helped train people from Colombia and other countries to learn demining in Cambodia. We have an ASEAN Mine Center located in Cambodia. I would like to inform that any country that wants to come to learn demining in Cambodia, including Russia, they are welcome. We help train all. I would like to emphasize that Cambodia has not sent troops into Ukraine and has not sent our deminers trainers into Ukraine. What we are doing is purely humanitarian. Destroying landmines and unexploded ordnance is a task to be done everywhere in the world [...]
(29) Japan has financial resource, Cambodia has demining training facilities […] I would like to confirm as a political decision maker responsible for domestic and foreign politics that Cambodia will accept any country that wants to learn demining. Please come to study in Cambodia. Do not involve Cambodia in military action in Ukraine. Cambodia does not have the capacity to do that. Cambodia's humanitarian work related to demining has been a bitter experience. Many people died and many people became disabled. Therefore, Cambodia cannot just watch the tragedy in other countries. Many Colombian (deminers) came to Cambodia [...] As Cambodian Foreign Minister is visiting Japan, I urged him to discuss with his Japanese counterpart. Japan has financial resources and Cambodia has location for training [...]

Cambodia Young Generation Leaders
FN ៖ Cambodian lieutenant general Hun Manet wrote a new message on Thursday morning, addressed to the former leader of the court-dissolved opposition party Sam Rainsy.
Two days passed and yet Rainsy still not responded to the wager made by Hun Manet over Rainsy’s allegation that Manet owned a fake degree from West Point Military Academy.
“Sam Rainsy has no courage to compete with the young generation. His silence is a clear answer that Rainsy does not dare to come out and wager with...Full story
On Thursday, January 7, 2021, it will be the 42th anniversary of the liberation of Cambodia from the notorious, and noxious, Pol Pot regime and the end of the Killing Fields. It is the day Cambodian survivors of that genocidal period describe as their second birthday.
Without then-Mr. Hun Sen seeking of assistance from neighbouring Vietnam to drive Pol Pot from power on that day in 1979, one cannot imagine how many more millions, or perhaps the remains of Cambodians who...Full story

Earlier, many had high hopes that once the Covid-19 vaccine is in place things will get back to normal like before the...Full story
