Kun Lbokator enters Unesco’s list

Kun Lbokator, Cambodia’s traditional martial art, has been inscribed on the Unesco’s representative list of the intangible cultural heritage of humanity, said a press statement from Cambodia’s Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts.

The inscription was made on Tuesday during the 17th session of the Intergovernmental Committee for the Safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage in Rabat, Morocco, the statement said.

“This is a great success and a new source of pride for the nation, that was born of high commitment and strong efforts made by the government under the wise leadership of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen, who has always protected and promoted the value of national cultural heritage,” it said.
