Hun Sen compares modern Cambodia to post-war era

Prime Minister Hun Sen has again used Facebook to compare the Kingdom’s current state of development with that of the post-war era. On Tuesday, he posted six photographs – one of a large bombed-out building and five showing current views of Phnom Penh featuring its recently built skyscrapers.

“Cambodia must have peace forever. The [first] image you are seeing is a partial view of Phnom Penh that was destroyed and abandoned by the 1975-1979 Pol Pot genocidal regime. Cambodia has [enjoyed] full peace for more than 20 years, and Phnom Penh has been constantly developing to be more prosperous.”
